Southeast Region PBIS Updates
Southeast Region Update
May 21st, 2013
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:
Materials from school presentations:
Dave from West Alis presented on Live Binders. If you want access to his binder, contact him at: firstname.lastname@example.org

The snow resulted in rescheduling our CESA 1 Coaches Corner. Here are the documents that we shared at all of our networking sessions this week. With a late valentine theme, we discussed the newly released applications for distinguished schools, information on this summer's WI PBIS Network Leadership Conference (Aug 20th and 21st), the Wisconsin Film Festival, the BOQ (which schools should begin completing), and how to use outcome data with the TIPs like model. We also discussed readiness for Tier 2. Here are the document used:
At our Tier 2 session, we introduced the MATT, the equivalent of the TIPs for progress monitoring Tier 2 systems. Here are the documents we shared:
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 hope you found the resources provided at the last Coaches Corner useful. Here is a list of the documents related to classroom management that you can access:
Our next Coaches Corner, on December 13th, will focus on Acknowledgement Systems, Boosters and Celebrations. We will begin our session as usual, with updates, then allow some time for coaches to share things that they have used from the Nov 1st session, and answer any questions related to classroom management. We'll use most of the time to share and network and problem solve around Acknowledgement Systems, Boosters and Celebrations.
The final hour will be for External Coaches only, with topics specific related to their role.
We look forward to Please sign up for this session, so that we can plan for handouts.
Also, please take advantage of the Coaches Forum, November 29th (8:30 - 3:30). Topics will include Action Planning with the TIC and SAS, Action Planning using ODR's, and Coaching for Systems Change. The fee is $50, and will be held at the Excellence Center in Waukesha. Please see the Calendar for information on how to register.

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.
