Chris Hubbuch, Director of Secondary Education, St. Joseph School District

Is your SW-PBS school or district initiative built to last? Successful implementation and the sustainability of systems change require intentional leadership at the classroom, school and district levels.

Session 5B

Title

A Function-Based Thinking Approach to Multi-Tiered Systems of Support

Kaye Otten, Licensed Behavior Analyst/Adjunct Professor, University of Central Missouri

Tier 1, 2, 3– Foundation

Descriptor

Students are often reinforced by the very things that are commonly used as consequences for problem behavior. Function-based thinking empowers all educators to provide behavior support more effectively to every student. This method considers why problem behaviors occur throughout all tiers of Positive Behavior Intervention and Support to guide responses rather than relying on traditional forms of discipline.

Incorporating Self-Regulation in BIPs

Heather L. Hatton, Assistant Research Professor, MU Center for SW-PBS

Tier 3 – Enrichment

Descriptor

Do you want to take your Behavior Intervention Plans (BIPs) to the next level? In this session, you will learn how to use the principles of motivation to teach students to regulate their own behavior. We will examine the critical features of BIPs through the lens of self-determination theory. Using case studies, we will decide when externally delivered reinforcers are appropriate and how to transition from externally delivered reinforcers to self-reinforcement and naturally occurring reinforcement.

This session will outline one school’s step-by-step process for analyzing and responding to behavioral data that engages teachers in all tiers and has resulted in a 60 percent decrease in behavior referrals. This process includes the use of grade-level and student-specific data to determine appropriate interventions and to progress-monitor the effect. It also streamlines communication, implementation and documentation while increasing staff efficacy and fidelity.

Having an effective SW-PBS team to identify students in need of support and to provide those supports is a vital part of any Tier 2 or 3 SW-PBS school. During this session, Dent-Phelps Elementary will outline how we developed an at-risk team to identify students in need of behavioral or academic supports, take referrals, gather data, and make decisions for which supports to provide. We also will provide samples and guidelines for how we streamlined our process from multi-hour meetings to weekly meetings that last only 45 minutes, all while using the limited resources available to us as a small school.

Here’s Your Unicorn! Effective Classroom Practices as Function-Based Classroom Management (Repeat)

Kelsey Morris, Assistant Teaching Professor, MU Center for SW-PBS; Deanna Maynard, MO SW-PBS Statewide Coach, MU

Tier 2, 3 – Application

(This session is a repeat of 2G.) Has the mythical solution to Tiers 2 and 3 problem behaviors been eluding you in your classroom? Each student might have different behaviors, but effective responses to problem behaviors all have something in common. This session will highlight Positive Behavior Supports that serve as fundamental building blocks for classroom management at Tiers 2 and 3. Eight preventive, evidence-based practices will be highlighted and connected to function-based supports to help educators think differently about classroom management.
