The PBIS Team Handbook is a helpful, accessible, and comprehensive guide to bringing the powerful tool of PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) into the classroom. PBIS is designed to provide a toolkit for educators to deal with disruptive behavior from students. This fully revised and updated edition includes fleshed out guidelines for implementing and continuing to use Tier 1 PBIS, along with multiple helpful tips, resources, and visual aids.
This new edition also includes chapters on realizing and addressing racial bias in discipline and behavioral treatment, use of the Tiered Fidelity Inventory, information on effective data collection, and research on sustainability. Research has shown that the traditional detention, suspension, and expulsion model is not effective in creating a positive school climate. Instead, collective analysis and research-based methods such as PBIS are the key to creating a positive, lasting change in the school setting.
