Developing Schoolwide Behavior Expectations - Tier 1
Developing School-Wide Behavior Expectations – Tier 1Schools will plan for the identification and teaching of school-wide expectations of behavior. Further, they will develop plans for active supervision, problem behavior identification, classroom management, data collection and data systems. Upon completion, schools will have identified gaps in current practice and have an action plan for steps to improve practice in their building.
- Establish Commitment
- Conduct audit of current status
- Establish expectations
- Establish information systems (outcomes and process tools)5. Build capacity for function-based support
Using the Benchmarks of Quality (BOQ) schools use data to establish an action plan for implementation and identify when they are ready for PBIS - Tier 2 training.
This work is grounded in the research related to PBIS, Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports, which encompasses “a range of research-based strategies used to increase the quality of life and decrease problem behavior by teaching new skills and making changes in a person's environment” (APBS, 2014). Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support combines; valued outcomes, behavioral and biomedical science, validated procedures, and systems change to enhance the quality of life and reduce problem behaviors
