PBIS Planning Guidance for Distance and Hybrid Settings

Thanks for continuing to share information about your distance learning plans to help other schools support the positive and prosocial behaviors to meet the social, emotional, and behavioral needs of all students.

Here are a few simple recommendations below from the National Center on PBIS to create a PBIS behavior teaching matrix for distance and hybrid learning models:

  • Keep the same school-wide behavior expectations.
  • Include online activities in your settings.
  • Consider online-specific behaviors that need to be taught.
  • Teach directly. Don't just post it.

More details in the practice guide Creating a PBIS Behavior Teaching Matrix for Remote Instruction, including an example matrix (pdf) courtesy of Grandview Middle School, Westonka Public Schools ISD 277.

Check out the continuously updated Minnesota PBIS & Distance Learning resource site for more examples.
