District Training Plan for
Tier 1 Installation
Tier 1 Installation
Districts often request a training outline for Tier 1 Installation. There is no one-plan-fits-all. All training and technical assistance plans should be based on a district needs assessment. Below is just one example of a training plan, developed for a district with some current implementation in every school, but no training in the past 5 years and inconsistent Tier 1 fidelity across all schools. The plan was implemented over 1.5 school years.

Starting Tier I - Readiness
PBIS Introduction for
New Team Members & Leaders
This training is designed for people who have not attended Tier 1 Team training and are joining an existing building-level Tier 1 Team, or people who need a refresher in the basics of Tier 1 PBIS. It is also for people who are changing roles (becoming a new building-level coach, taking on administrative role, etc...) on an existing building-level team.

Capacity Building Sequence
Capacity Building Sequence
This capacity building model is suitable if you are new to PBIS or need to re-boot your current implementation overall. PBIS is more likely to be successful when supported by district leadership. See below for more information regarding research on successful implementation. Many states have capacity building plans starting at the state level.
School administrators and coaches will prepare to lead their school through the planning and implementation of PBIS. These leaders will learn the critical features of PBIS, and understand the integration of classroom management practices into Tier I. Participants will also learn about coaching and team facilitation roles, use of behavioral data for decision-making, and progress-monitoring for fidelity of implementation and student outcomes.
Tier I Team Booster
This booster is designed for school teams who have been trained in Tier I Team Training since 2015, with the curriculum aligned to the Tiered Fidelity Inventory. This training emphasizes core modules from the full Tier 1 Team training, to boost full fidelity of implementation. Teams will leave with a concrete action plan to boost their implementation.
This Classroom Practice specific 1 day training will provide a more detailed look at all six of the classroom practices. Coaches, administrators, team members, and other classroom practice leaders engage in the professional learning necessary to install and coach the six identified classroom practices/components in a systemic, efficient, and effective way.
Tier I Leadership & Readiness
School administrators and coaches will prepare to lead their school through the planning and implementation of PBIS. These leaders will learn the critical features of PBIS, and understand the integration of classroom management practices into Tier I. Participants will also learn about coaching and team facilitation roles, use of behavioral data for decision-making, and progress-monitoring for fidelity of implementation and student outcomes. School leaders may participate in this training as the third day follow-up to team training or in advance of team training .
The training will begin with in-the-moment regulation activities an adult can use to stay calm when a student escalates as well as long term strategies an adult can use to help increase the odds of staying calm when a student escalates. Additionally, we will explore the phases of escalation and how any adult can learn to intervene to de-escalate a student. This training is based off the research and work of Geoff Colvin and Terry Scott who wrote the book Managing the Cycle of Acting-Out Behavior in the Classroom, Second Edition.
District Leadership Overview
and Planning Day
Join us for an overview of the core components of district leadership and coaching. We will be using the outline of the PBIS Blueprint to address executive and Implementation functions. We will address executive functions focusing the PBIS Blueprint. We will look at stake-holder engagement, funding and alignment, district policies and workforce capacity. Participants will leave with an action plan addressing each area of the PBIS Blueprint.
Nuts & Bolts of District Leadership Team
This three hour introduction will explore critical components of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), an MTSS framework for climate, culture, social, emotional, and behavioral outcomes. PBIS is the most researched and developed MTSS framework. District leaders will acquire knowledge and build upon what is already known, to make informed decisions about next steps in improving the systems of support in place to positively impact student behavior.
District Coaches Training
This three-hour training is designed specifically for District level PBIS/MTSS Coaches, and those individuals who assist schools within their district with PBIS tiered supports and implementation. The training will be organized around the implementation elements as defined within the PBIS Implementation Blueprint. District Coaches will leave this training with further understanding of their role and how to develop systemic support for PBIS implementation. A Professional Development and Coaching Monthly Calendar and Coaches Self-Assessment will be explored within this training.
