Presentation Abstract

PRESENTATION ABSTRACT: Teams are coached to enhance efficiency and effectiveness by Working Smarter, not Harder to implement the PBIS framework. Implementing the PBIS framework with fidelity and incorporating input from all stakeholders (staff, students, family, and community) to help shape practices are at the core of increasing PBIS sustainability. Parents and community members who attend this presentation can learn more about the strategies teams use to incorporate feedback and provide beneficial information for use in the home and within their local communities, industries, and businesses.

This school year, teams used the Tiered Fidelity Inventory to measure their perceptions of PBIS implementation in their schools. According to www.pbisassessment.org, the TFI is a survey taken 3-4 times annually to assess the extent to which school personnel apply the core features of SWPBIS at all three tiers – either individually or collectively. Teams may take the TFI for a variety of purposes including:

  • An initial assessment to determine if they are using, or need, SWPBIS
  • A guide for implementation of Tier I, Tier II, and/or Tier III practices
  • An index of sustained SWPBIS implementation
  • A metric for identifying schools for recognition within their state implementation efforts

Other strategies for using End-of-Year (EOY) data will be shared to bring awareness to the importance of making data-based decisions in conjunction with reviewing the school profile information to determine the appropriate recognition level according to the New GA Recognition Criteria.
