This is Tier 3

After the universal (tier 1) and the selected levels (tier 2) are in place, schools and districts begin to build the last level of support. This level is called intensive (or tier 3) and is for those very few students in our system who need more individualized supports above and beyond the universal and selected levels. These are the students who have skills either well above or well below benchmark and require the most expertise for support in instruction, collaboration and assessment.

Is your district or school ready to implement tier 3?

This short webinar will provide you with a brief introduction to tier 3 (intensive, individualized support), as part of the PBIS framework within a culturally responsive multi-level system of support. In this webinar, you can quickly learn about tier 3 processes and explore commitment and readiness requirements in order to further conversations in your school/district. 


Four Elements of PBIS

  1. Systems: Written policies, procedures and expectations are a few of the systems put in place by schools implementing PBIS. These systems help maintain a consistent approach to behavior.
  2. Data: The data collected helps school teams make informed decisions about managing behavior and measuring outcomes. The data is also used to find the right mix of practices and systems for your school.
  3. Practices: Classroom exercises exhibiting good behavior help students to understand what is expected of them. Likewise, educators follow a set of ‘best-practices’ that have been identified for their school. These practices keep both students and teachers moving forward with PBIS.
  4. Outcomes: The results of PBIS can be measured by both academic and behavioral changes in students. These outcomes are measured using the PBIS data collected.
