Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) are being implemented in over 20,000 schools across 47 states, and Maine has over 100 schools implementing SWPBIS. This conference includes an “Implementor’s Forum,” implementation sessions in which several Maine schools will share their experiences implementing PBIS, including preparation, unique practices and systems, and outcomes thus far. Other sessions are designed to support schools seeking to start up or sustain PBIS efforts, including topics such as Primary and Secondary Tier interventions, SWIS (School Wide Information System), RTI, Social Skills, classroom interventions and more.
