Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a process for creating safer and more effective schools. It is a research-based data-driven model that works with all students including those with challenging behavior issues. PBIS offers a school-wide approach for identifying, teaching and acknowledging behavioral expectations to foster the most optimal school and learning climate.
Session Overview: This full-day session will provide participants with an overview of the Team Initiated Problem Solving (TIPS) model which enables users to become more efficient and effective at using data for decision-making during team meetings. Participants will concentrate on utilizing data to apply a functional perspective to behavior. Structured activities will be presented to allow participants to create action plans to use in their schools.
Please Note: Presentation materials will be posted on the New York State PBIS website and will be provided to participants via a flash drive at time of training rather than paper versions. Please visit Regional Forum Materials to see a full list of materials. Participants are encouraged to bring their laptops to utilize the flash drive during the training or may print the session documents in advance.
