WHAT WORKS

Proactive Positive Behavioral Supports

Ask the ‘TASC #8: What is the best way to implement PBIS in a middle school? A high school?

You’re right!  High school PBIS is different than elementary school PBIS.  And… you’re right again!  High school PBIS is similar to elementary school PBIS.  Let’s start with what we know to be consistent across all ages: the why; i.e., the academic, behavioral, and social-emotional outcomes we want every student to achieve.  From there we develop and implement the necessary systems and practices to achieve those outcomes...

Ask the ‘TASC #7: What is a “replacement” behavior? How do I identify an appropriate one? 

This is a question that comes up a lot and one reason I think it can be confusing is that the term “replacement behavior” is used in multiple ways. Sometimes, in the context of PBIS, we talk generally about replacement behaviors for problem behaviors that we are seeing in large numbers throughout a school or program. On the other hand, we also talk about replacement behaviors in the context of problem behaviors exhibited by individual students.

Ask the ‘TASC # 6: How do we empower staff at lunch/recess to take initiative?

Question: How do we empower staff at lunch/recess to take initiative?
My advice is find a way to involve them in the process, remembering that changing adult behavior by empowering them to take the initiative is a process, not a onetime event or a check box on your implementation to do list! Ask yourself: Have you taken time to train the lunchroom staff in how to teach and reinforce positive behaviors as well as the procedures for responding to students’ behavior errors? If you have trained them, have you followed up with them to ask if they have any questions, concerns, or suggestions for how to improve behavior systems at lunch and recess? Next, have you shared data with them related to the lunch room or recess behaviors?
