Presentation Abstract

This presentation will illustrate how Mainstay Academy, a member of the Georgia Network for Educational and Therapeutic Supports (GNETS), has implemented a Student PBIS Ambassadors Program to promote student involvement in School Wide PBIS and to initiate student to student PBIS mentoring. The Student PBIS Ambassador selection and training processes will be discussed; and using video clips and role play, the Student PBIS Ambassadors will demonstrate some of their duties and responsibilities.

Mainstay Academy has embraced PBIS as a process - something we do in community as a community. When engaged in this positive, proactive process, our students with Severe Emotional Behavior Disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and mental illness are provided with opportunities to collaboratively identify and solve problems, to evaluate and learn about human behavior, and to master and teach proactive, positive social skills. Student involvement promotes the concept and experience of shared positive culture and assists in building a more tolerant and supportive community within and beyond the school.
