Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports: A framework for teaching students expectations, reinforcing appropriate pro-social behavior, and providing instruction and consequences for errors in behavior.
Multi-Tiered System of Supports: An operational framework of tiered supports for improving academic and behavioral outcomes for all students.
Office Discipline Referrals: A method for tracking students referred to the office as a discipline method.
Fidelity: Implementation of a strategy or intervention as it is intended and with all the components that have been shown to lead to the desired outcomes.
Pleasant Hill Elementary has been experiencing behavior problems in the cafeteria. This has required a lot of time on the part of lunch duties, teachers, and administrators, and many students have been referred to the office. For a given lunch period there are typically 2-3 students that are sent in to the office for behavior problems.
This school is being responsive to behavioral issues but they would benefit form learning how to pro-actively teach students expectations and reinforce appropriate behavior to reduce the number of behavior problems in the cafeteria.
Survey Results: Submit a completed Tiered Fidelity Inventory with at least Tier 1 completed. Identify at least two action items for improved implementation of positive behavior supports. With the TFI, submit a proposed plan for PBIS implementation. For example, team will establish and teach 3-5 possible school-wide expectations and implement at least 2 reinforcement strategies for their school.
Candidates are required to make 1 evidence submission(s).
