Brockport Central School District PBIS Team presents at APBS International Conference on Positive Behavior Support!
In March, members of the Brockport Central School District PBIS team presented during a poster session at the APBS International Conference on Positive Behavior Support in Denver, CO. In a room filled with research and theory, they were one of only two school districts to be accepted for a poster session, which was very well attended with many compliments from participants. The team highlighted an innovative approach to foster academic and behavioral growth through an aligned K-12 PBIS Instructional Settings matrix. In an effort to strengthen tier 1 practices, the district team created this matrix to use within all classrooms with common language for grades K-5 and 6-12. This practice necessitates teachers provide instruction on the expectations in the matrix as they relate to their specific routines and procedures. The implementation of this practice allowed them to streamline behavioral data collection, begin merging academic and social-emotional learning, and increase staff ownership of teaching, modeling, and reinforcing behavioral expectations in all settings.
