attend
TAC-D’s Eastern Regional Workshops
Culturally Responsive PBIS Practices
Workshop Description: This four-part series addresses ways to root PBIS procedures and practices in cultural
responsiveness by examining: 1) existing PBIS procedures and practices; 2) assessing districts/and schools’ current
implementation of PBIS; 3) the role cultural responsiveness has on implementing PBIS; and 4) the development of an
action plan to incorporate cultural responsiveness into PBIS. These workshops are offered to any interested school
district at no cost.

Session 1: Assessing Our Policies & Practices Related to PBIS: Where to Start. This session introduces
participants on how to examine their policies and practices related to implementing PBIS using a culturally responsive
lens to deeply assess a districts’/schools’ PBIS system, including procedures, processes, and practices. Please
bring current PBIS implementation/action plans and recent data (discipline data, suspension data, any other
relevant data)

Session 2: Principles of Cultural Responsiveness and Implications for Behavior Variation. This session aims
to assist district and school staff in identifying the role that a cultural responsive approach has on understanding
students’ behavior.

Session 3: What is Cultural Responsiveness and Why is Important for PBIS? This session builds on session 2
and provides a deeper exploration of cultural responsiveness, the role it plays in understanding our students’
behavior, and its implication for PBIS implementation.

Session 4: Taking Action: Rooting PBIS Policies and Practices in CRE. This will be a working session aimed at
systemically incorporating CRE into existing PBIS plans. One goal will be to use a Culturally Responsive lens to
develop, revise, or adapt existing policies, procedures or practices and incorporate Culturally Responsiveness.
Please bring existing PBIS implementation/action plans and current data to sessions.
