Providing intensive support for a student results in a lot of documentation! Assessments, plans, progress monitoring charts, communication, fidelity measures and more need to be managed by the Tier 3 action team to ensure efficient, effective use of meeting time and high-quality support for the student. Learn how to organize Tier 3 documentation using the Tier 3 Student File Checklist to keep all information up to date, as well as a fidelity measure to ensure the Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) your team develops is implemented as intended.
Presenter: Danielle Starkey, Research Associate, MU Center for MO SW-PBS
Explore the use of evidence-based practices in place of the popular elementary school clip-chart approach. Learn how to provide effective feedback for appropriate and inappropriate behavior that results in lasting behavior change.
Presenter: Daniel Rector, MO SW-PBS Consultant, Hook Center
With universal screening becoming more prominent, school-based teams have access to huge amounts of data. However, how is your school using your universal screening data? This session will provide a brief overview of universal screening tools with a focus on how these tools can identify students for Tier 2+ interventions as well as implications for schoolwide practices.
Intensifying the Effective Classroom Practices for Middle and Secondary Grades
Presenters: Renée Black, MO SW-PBS Consultant, Kansas City RPDC; Kelly Nash, MO SW-PBS Consultant, Kansas City RPDC
Students in the middle and upper grades have unique needs and respond in different ways to instruction and classroom management, especially when they need a bit more than our Tier 1 best practices. Join us as we look at the Effective Classroom Practices, rooted in classroom management and instruction/engagement, through the lens of the middle and secondary levels. See how these practices can be intensified for students needing the additional support that comes at Tier 2.

Before SW-PBS could be used in its entirety, we needed to educate and train the staff and faculty. Without their involvement for implementation, the responsibility would have fallen on the shoulders of a few, and that would have made SW-PBS unsustainable.

LaMonte Elementary staff members will share with you the resources and ideas they’ve used to keep their SW-PBS program fresh and at the forefront of school culture on a daily basis.
