PBIS Training Sequence

PBIS is a process, not a program. So, the length of time it takes differs for each school. Schools typically take between three and five years to move through the PBIS sequence outlined below. And, while most schools see results in the first few months, it can take far longer to completely shift the climate of a school.

As you move through the sequence remember that PBIS is not something you ‘finish.’ It’s something that becomes part of the way your school operates. Behaviors change over time and PBIS gives schools the tools to adapt to those changing needs.

Tier 1/Universal

In Tier 1 school leaders build the foundation for PBIS by forming a School Leadership Team and setting expectations for behavior school-wide. Often, schools will see an improvement in 80% of students as they implement Tier 1 practices.

Transition from Tier 1 to Tier 2

For successful implementation, schools should meet fidelity on Tier 1 before transitioning to Tier 2. Fidelity can be demonstrated by meeting at least one of the following criteria:

  • Benchmarks of Quality (BOQ) overall score of 70%
  • Team Implementation Checklist (TIC) overall score of 80%
  • Self-Assessment Survey (SAS) score of 80% on the School-wide section
  • School-wide Evaluation Tool (SET) score of 80% on the Expectations Taught section and an overall score of 80%.

Tier 2/Secondary

In Tier 2 your School Leadership Team will begin to address the needs of the students who have not responded to the practices in Tier 1. Here schools typically see improvement in an additional 10-15% of students.

In Tier 3, your School Leadership Team will focus on the individual behavior of the remaining 5-10% of students who have been unresponsive to Tier 1 and Tier 2. The team will learn strategies to help students either meet expectations or cope with their challenges.
