PBIS Universal Team Retreats Presented by DATES: October 14, 2015 and March 30, 2016 TIME: 8:00am–3:00pm (registration begins at 7:30am) LOCATION: Grappone Conference Center 70 Constitution Avenue, Concord NH REGISTRATION FEE: $119 per session individual; $99 member of a group of 3+ includes continental breakfast, lunch, & materials INSTRUCTOR: JoAnne Malloy, Ph.D. WHO SHOULD ATTEND: These retreats are for Universal Teams that are implementing PBIS or groups from schools that are exploring PBIS implementation. Attendance at both sessions is recommended, but not required. SERIES DESCRIPTION: Improving school climate and safety is important for creating a positive learning environment for all students. Schools that implement a system of effective behavioral and academic interventions and practices have better educational outcomes and staff satisfaction. Schoolwide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based framework designed to change the school environment to become less reactive, address disciplinary issues, provide training for school staff in best practices, and stress the use of data for decision-making. One of the core elements of a PBIS system is the work of a Leadership or Universal Team. These retreats will allow individuals or teams from schools to understand, organize, and begin to plan their work, by providing a PBIS Manual, organizational and self-assessment tools and technical assistance, support to set up data systems, and communication strategies. Teams will leave each session with a workplan for implementation for the next several months. October 2015: Getting Organized to Implement PBIS! The Fall retreat will include an overview of PBIS Universal level systems, data, and practices. Teams will 1) identify their phone: 603.228.2084 | relay: 711 email: [email protected] PBIS implementation status, 2) plan for the school year, 3) analyze their school-wide data, and 4) develop new or revise their existing systems, including the schoolwide behavior expectations matrix, the school’s behavior definitions table, screening system, the office discipline referral form and flow chart, and teaching tools for specific school-wide roll out activities. It is expected that each school will be in a different stage of implementation, so presentations will be focused on individualized team selfassessment and team time. March 2016: Getting Ready to Improve PBIS Implementation The Spring retreat will allow Universal PBIS school teams to review their progress during the school year and plan for PBIS implementation during the 2015-16 school year. ABOUT PBIS: PBIS is a systemic, data-driven behavioral support and improvement systems change model that consists of three levels—Tier 1 (Universal), Tier 2 (Behavioral Support), and Tier 3 (Intensive)—each specifically designed to prevent disruption and address the behavioral support needs of students at risk of school failure: Universal PBIS Teams develop the systems, structures, and practices for the delivery of schoolwide social supports for all students.
