PBIS Tier 3: Creating Functional Behavior Intervention Plans to Improve Challenging Behavior
Starting 1/16/2020 at 9:00 AM until 3:30 PM
• State Support Team 11 - Multi-Tiered Systems of Support
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a proactive approach to support school staff in their efforts to establish school cultures that drive emotional and academic success. Students who continue to demonstrate behavioral difficulties with limited responses to universal and targeted systems of support will benefit from an individualized approach to intervention. Functional behavioral Assessment (FBA) provides a format for the assessment of student behavior which may be interfering with student’s emotional and academic development. Information from the FBA supports the school team and family in developing a Behavior Support Plan (a teaching plan) that promotes positive changes in student behavior. This three-day training will assist building-based teams to assess the function of student behavior and develop interventions for improving challenging behavior. Participating building teams will need to submit an application and await approval. It is preferred that school-wide PBIS practices are currently in place. Teams will also need to have administration representation, an assigned internal facilitator, and actively participate in training and onsite coaching services during the first year of implementation. Optimal team size is 4-6 members (with 6 members being maximum).
