Presentation Abstract

The Futures Program has developed a daily data collection tool (Daily Point Sheet) that monitors PBIS expectations and rules (through mastery of social skills goals) and individual exit criteria for each student, using the SWIS Suite data collection system. The students daily point sheet utilizes ISIS for exit criteria and CICO for showing mastery of social skills. The program has directly correlated the PBIS matrix with the Social Skills and the PBIS expectations that are used program wide. The PBIS rules are the program’s social skills, which have been broken down into a stepbystep task analysis that are then used for direct social skill instruction. Formal, direct social skills instruction happens several times a day within each class and teaching of individual replacement skills happens on an as needed basis for each student. The prosocial skills economy is then linked to the PBIS matrix rules. Social Skills are reinforced on the data collection tool, which allows for students to earn points at predetermined intervals based on their demonstration of the steps for each social skill.
