Recommendations for Common PBIS Experiences

Welcome back to a new school year! Below are recommendations for common experiences that schools encounter after having been trained and implementing PBIS over time.

  • Team turnover: Most of our PBIS team that went through training is no longer working here.
  • New principal: We have a new principal. What’s the best way to transition?
  • Need a booster: Our building needs a PBIS booster. How do we dothat?
  • Need a data system: We don’t have current data. How do we start getting a data system back into place?
  • Staff buy-in: We obtained Staff buy-in before training. Do we have to continue getting staff buy-in during or after training?

2021 Summer Institute Festival Recordings and Materials Available

PBIS Guidance for Distance and Hybrid Settings

Thanks to all the teams that shared information about distance learning plans to support the positive and prosocial behaviors to meet the social, emotional, and behavioral needs of all students across a range of settings last year.

The Minnesota PBIS for Distance & Hybrid Environments resource site has many examples. We look forward to continuing to learn and share about your efforts to ensure a full and safe return for all students and staff this fall, with additional resources to share.
