Welcome to Minnesota PBIS!

Virtual 2021 Summer Institute and Film Festival

The  2021 Virtual Minnesota PBIS Summer Institute and Film Festival is June 16 and 17, 2021. There is no cost for the Institute, but registration is required.

This year’s keynote is Dr. Tamika La Salle, University of Connecticut (UConn), the school climate and culture coordinator for the Center on PBIS.

Breakout sessions focus on connecting PBIS with practices that promote equitable outcomes in education, and aligning initiatives in the PBIS framework.

More information and registration can be found on the Summer Institute webpage.

PBIS Guidance for Distance and Hybrid Settings

Thanks to all the teams that shared information about distance learning plans to help other schools support the positive and prosocial behaviors to meet the social, emotional, and behavioral needs of all students this year.

The National Center on PBIS developed the practice guide Creating a PBIS Behavior Teaching Matrix for Remote Instruction, which include an example matrix (pdf) courtesy of Grandview Middle School, Westonka Public Schools ISD 277.

The Minnesota PBIS & Distance Learning resource site has additional examples. We are looking forward to the possibility of a full and safe return for all students and staff in the fall, with additional resources to share.


What is PBIS?
