SPY 610 Developing a School-wide System of Behavior Support Today's schools are charged with improving school climate with a broad range of systemic and individualized strategies for achieving important social and learning outcomes. School-wide support includes procedures and processes that are intended for all students, all staff, and all settings. The school-wide PBIS process emphasizes the creation of systems that support the adoption and durable implementation of evidence-based practices and procedures, and fit within on-going school reform efforts. Participants in this course will work in collaborative groups to gain awareness, knowledge, and skills regarding SW-PBIS and to create action plans to build (or further develop) school-wide leadership teams who want to move more toward a preventative, positive, and educational model of school-wide discipline.
