District Training

This 3-6 hour session is for the members of the District Leadership Team. In this training, learners will be given an overview of PBIS and the responsibilities of the District Team, with specific focus on the role of the District Coach.  The District Team and the District Coach are a vital support to School Coaches and the success of implementation at the school level.

Tier I Training

This training is intended for School Leadership Teams and will prepare them to implement the PBIS Framework in their school.  School Leadership Teams will meet on three different days, with Team Time embedded to work on PBIS implementation tasks.  Each day of training is six hours in duration.  For more information about Tier I training, contact Steve Hutton at steven.hutton@eku.edu.

Coaches Training

New School Coaches will be asked to participate in at least one additional day of training.  This training focuses on the specific roles and responsibilities of the Coach to the success of the PBIS implementation. The Coach will be given tools to help them be successful in his/her role, with an emphasis on data collection and annual evaluation of PBIS.

TIPs (Team-Initiated Problem Solving)

This one day training is for school leadership teams wishing to learn a more effective way of analyzing their data and to use a research-based validated framework to help them problem-solve and develop solutions.  Teams will be taught how to use the TIPs Action Plan/Minutes form. Teams are also provided skills to help them analyze various data sources, with a specific focus on the use of SWIS.

Administrator Training

This half-day training is designed for School Administrators, who are new to the PBIS team or who would like a review of PBIS.  The role of the administrator is vital to the success of any PBIS implementation.  This training will outline specific expectations for the School Administrator and will provide him/her with the tools to insure a successful implementation.

BOQ (Benchmarks of Quality)

This online session will train coaches to use Benchmarks of Quality. BoQ assessment will help teams gain an understanding of how PBIS is functioning in their school, document program effectiveness, and identify and examine strengths and weaknesses of PBIS implementation.

TFI (Tiered Fidelity Inventory)

This training will review the use of the TFI to assess PBIS implementation at all three tiers.  This instrument can be used in place of the TIC, BoQ, BAT, and SAS. This instrument can be used as a progress monitoring tool, or for school’s who have achieved Fidelity (80%), it can be used as an annual evaluation.  Teams should bring 3-4 members to this training, including the Administrator and the Coach.

Sustainability

Sustaining momentum is vital in any change effort. Because it takes longer for meaningful change to become practice there must be clear strategies and supports available. This session is for school leadership teams, who desire to review their efforts at PBIS by analysis of their outcome and fidelity data and action plan and to develop a long-term Action Plan for the next school year.

Classroom Management Modules

This training is designed as a train-the-trainer session.  Typically, the school administrator and the school coach will attend this 3 hour session to learn about the modules that are available to assist with introducing the PBIS implementation into the classroom.  Participants will be provided the tools to train staff and to evaluate progress.  Many of these modules address areas monitored by PGES-specifically classroom environment.

BEP (Behavior Education Program)

The Behavior Education Program (BEP) is a proactive, research-based intervention for responding to mild to moderate problem behavior and preventing the development of more serious problems. The approach incorporates daily behavioral feedback, positive adult attention, and increased home-school collaboration. A 4-6 person team from each school shall participate in this ½ day session.

Tier II/III (Advanced Tiers)

This series of trainings is designed for the Tier2/3 team and the focus is on the practical FBA and student interventions.  Schools should have maintained Fidelity at Tier I for at least two years and should have implemented the Classroom Management Modules prior to considering this training. This is an intense training designed for the Tier2/3 team, usually consisting of 3-4 behavior experts from the school.
