As your school or district considers or implements Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS), planning for long-term results is key, and a strong, functioning PBIS leadership team can help you do this.

The PBIS leadership team plays an important role in your school—they tackle many tasks and make many decisions before even one reward ticket is handed out to students. And with proper planning and strategic thinking, the leadership team can guide your school to full implementation and sustainability.

In this edWebinar, authors of The PBIS Team Handbook: Setting Expectations and Building Positive Behavior Char Ryan, Ph.D., a former statewide trainer, and Beth Baker, M.S.Ed., a school- and district-wide coach, lead you through the decision to implement PBIS in your school or district. Through stories, insights, and missteps from their own PBIS journeys, Beth and Char teach the role of the PBIS leadership team and how to select team members, conduct initial team training, develop a strong and functional team, and successfully manage team transitions. By the end of this recorded presentation, you will have a PBIS action plan in hand and will have identified at least one next step.

Administrators, school psychologists, school social workers and counselors, behavior specialists, and classroom and special education teachers grades K–12, and those who are curious about how PBIS could enhance their school’s climate are invited to watch this recorded edWebinar.
