Getting Your School Ready for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports

Thank you for your interest in implementing SWPBIS in your district. Please review the information provided below that will walk you through the process to begin getting ready for implementation. 

1. Contact your Regional Coordinator.  He/She will be able to answer your questions and schedule a district level overview.  This session is free and should be scheduled for 2-3 hours of time. A district planning team, consisting of the superintendent or designee, director of special education, building principals and other key administrators, should attend. The session content will include an overview of SWPBIS process including the practices, data, and systems at the district and school building level.  Participants will review the district commitments for implementing SWPBIS and begin to develop and action plan.

2. Once the district overview is held, your PA PBS Network Facilitator will work with your established district leadership team. When you have signed the district commitment, your team will begin action planning for the implementation of SWPBS. This commitment is a 3-5 year process of training, implementation, completion of outcome tools, and adherence to fidelity measures.

PBIS Assessment is a web-based application designed to assist in high fidelity, sustaining implementation of School-Wide Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (SWPBIS). Schools involved in the implementation of SWPBIS complete the assessments surveys online and require accessibility through the State PBIS Assessment coordinators.
