The climate of each learning community is different; therefore, a one size fits all approach is less effective than interventions based on the needs of each school.
One of the foremost advances in schoolwide discipline is the emphasis on schoolwide systems of support that include proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments.
The presentation provides overview of SW-PBS implementation with data.
It focuses on: 1) effective behavioral interventions, 2) academic & social behavior outcomes, 3) Rt I application, and 4) SWIS summary 07-08.
It especially focuses on: 1) personnel preparation context & implementation, 2) critical features & developmental influences, and 3) SWPBS example and outcomes.
The presentation provides research-based strategies on systems-change efforts utilized at the high school level from addressing administrator buy-in, overcoming faculty reluctance, motivating young adults, and increasing parent participation across these settings.
Attention is focused on creating and sustaining Tier 1 supports (universal), Tier 2 supports (targeted group), and Tier 3 supports (individual) systems of support that improve lifestyle results (personal, health, social, family, work, recreation) for all children and youth by making targeted behaviors less effective, efficient, and relevant, and desired behavior more functional. " In the infamous words of a TV personality, "How is that working out for you?
Frequently, the question is asked, "Why should I have to teach kids to be good? "In the past, schoolwide discipline has focused mainly on reacting to specific student misbehavior by implementing punishment-based strategies including reprimands, loss of privileges, office referrals, suspensions, and expulsions.
Research has shown that the implementation of punishment, especially when it is used inconsistently and in the absence of other positive strategies, is ineffective.
Introducing, modeling, and reinforcing positive social behavior is an important step of a student's educational experience.
The presentation is about establishing a system to appropriatelyidentify, assess, and evaluating implementation outcomes of School-wide Positive Behavior Supports (universal level/tier 1) in order to recognize model or exemplar schools in your state or district.
The presentation describes the features and procedures for moving evidence-based educational practices from demonstrations to large-scale adoptions.
It especially focuses on: 1) prevention, 2) continuum of evidence-based practices, 3) academic-behavior link, and 4) systems capacity.
