Webinar Description

Snapshot: Surprisingly, many schools find that the biggest challenge in implementing Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support (SWPBS) is not dealing with the unresponsive student who needs additional behavior interventions (Tier 2 and 3).

The biggest challenge is teaching students about the rules and expectations for behavior and getting staff solidly behind this primary prevention effort (Tier 1).  Staff must learn to actively support good behavior instead of reacting to bad behavior. They must learn to coach all students in the socially appropriate behaviors that create a school culture that is predictable, consistent, positive and safe.

Donald Kincaid, EdD, director of the Florida Positive Behavior Support Project at the University of South Florida, will provide you with practical answers to the most common implementation issues and questions when schools make the transition to SWPBS. The emphasis will be on Tier 1 implementation.

In working with schools around the country, Don says there are 12 questions he hears repeatedly about how to be effective with Tier 1 efforts. The webinar will provide answers to these 12 most commonly asked questions.

Webinar topics:

  1. How to form an effective Tier 1 team
