Southeast Region PBIS Updates
February, 2016 High School Networking Session
This session was held at Franklin High School. During this session information was shared regarding the Film Festival, Application of Recognition changes, and Tiered Fidelity Checklist. We also explored ways of encouraging student voice in PBIS systems.
Here are the handouts:
January, 2016 Session
We began our session by hearing from Dave Stanley, who has had practice implementing the Tiered Fidelity Checklist (TFI) in his district. This instrument is a good alternative for schools that have reached fidelity on the BOQ, and are trained in Tier 2. It can be used instead of the BOQ, MATT and BAT. The SAS would still be administered in the fall. Here is the YouTube link for his talk.
We continued our exploration of Culturally Responsive Data Based Decision Making by looking at how to calculate risk ratio. We used office discipline data for Tier 1.
Here are the resources from these sessions:
- Power point for Tier 1 Internal Coaches
- Risk Ratio Calculator (This can be found in the Resource section of our Website)
- Short elearning course (10 min) (This can be found by going to PBIS in Action, clicking on On Line Modules, and then scrolling down to Calculating Risk Ratio)
- Using Discipline Data within PBIS to Identify and Address Disproportionality
External Coaches looked at change, and viewed a short video on how to work with staff resistant to change.
- Power Point for External Coaches
- Coaches Check List Tier 1
- Coaches Check List Tier 2
- Link to Coaches Calendar (This can be found by going to the Coaches tab on our website, and clicking on Coaching Calendar)
At Tier 2 we compared the number of students receiving 2 - 5 referrals, and the number of students receiving interventions, to see if there were groups that were over represented, or students that may need Tier 2 services that were not receiving them.
Updates: There will be a slight change in the Application of Recognition process. Only 4 narrative questions will be asked: Family Engagement, Classroom Management, Culturally Responsive Practices, and Action planning using data.
There are on line TA's every month for Tier 1 and Tier 2.
- Tier 1 TA flyer
- Tier 2 TA flyer
There has been a change in the Tier 1 and Tier 2 Overview schedule. There are one more Tier 1 overview (Feb 19th from 9:30 - 11:30) this year, and only two Tier 2 Overviews (Jan 29th and May 20th). Please contact your TAC if you have a school in need of an overview.

November, 2015 Session
This year, our networking sessions will be focused on Culturally Responsive Data Based Decision Making. Our themes for each session will be:
1. Cultural Awareness
2. Evaluating System's Impact
3. Digging Deeper
We will also be sharing information that we feel will support schools considering applying for Schools of Recognition.
In November's session, we also introduced the Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI). The session concluded with networking. It appears that many schools are challenged with how to sustain their efforts to implement the PBIS framework over time, and in the face of many new initiatives.
Here are the handouts:
- TFI Manual (links to other resources are in the power point)
- TFI Scavenger Hunt Activity
- Cultural Proficiency article
- Classroom Management Flyer
- Tier 1 TA Webinar series Flyer
- Tier 2 TA Webinar Flyer
- Tier 1 MPS Walk Through
- Tier 2 MPS Walk Through

At Coaches Corner, we discussed time management for internal coaches, and challenges faced and ways to address them. We also discussed characteristics of a good team, and how to work with "meeting monsters". We shared some common mistakes that we saw when reviewing Applications for Distinction, such as using Tier 2 supports to address disproportionality, and listing the teaching of school-wide expectations in the class setting as classroom management. Finally, we had several coaches share resources that they found helpful in their job.
At the Tier 2 meeting we discussed time management and reviewed best practices. We discussed how to back-fill if Tier 1 pieces were not in place.
Next year, we will be integrating behavior and academic networking meetings for at least 2 sessions. In order for us to best meet your needs, we requested that 2 very brief surveys be completed. Those links, as well the documents we shared, are below:

This year, the Wisconsin PBIS Network has a special focus on developing External Coaches. A strong External Coach is considered a key component to school's implementing PBIS with fidelity, and has been shown to decrease the amount of time that schools need to fully implement the PBIS framework. We encourage External Coaches to attend all of the training sessions available locally and stae-wide. H ere are the handouts from this month's Coaches Corner, Tier 1
Upcoming Coach Events: The next Coaches Corner will be on December 5th at CESA 1, and repeated at Oak Creek High School on December 6th.
There will also be on Adobe Connect Session on Oct 15th from 2-4 pm. This will connect all coaches state wide.
On October 30th and 31st, the state wide External Coaches Forum will be held at Olypia Village. Regester on the Wisconsin PBIS Network Website.

We were excited to meet with everyone Tuesday for the Coaches Forum. We had a request for the slides from our power point. You can download the actual power point here (large, lengthy download) or you can download the slides with notes as an Adobe file here (smaller, faster download). If you access the note section, you will see talking points and explanations for the slides.
We have a schedule of the upcoming Coaches' Corner meetings, along with tentative topics. We will be discussing classroom management at our next meeting in November. External Coaches have asked that this session be open to Internal Coaches as well, which we will do. Please register early, to make sure we have a space that can accommodate everyone if we end up with a bigger than usual turn out.
Finally, there seems to be an interest in continuing with our current format of following the general meeting with a 40 minute networking and informational session with External Coaches. External Coaches, please leave time in your calendars to attend this.
