End of the Year Activities

End of the Year Assessments

It is hard to believe that it is almost the last day of the school year! Teams should be completing end of the year measures of implementation fidelity and beginning to plan for next school year.

All schools should have either scheduled or completed the School Safety and Self-Assessment surveys to be completed by ALL staff. Contact either Alanna Mcmullan or Chanda Telleen if you need to schedule these.

Teams will have access to the results of the surveys via PBIS ASSESSMENT. The results of the surveys should be used to assist teams in the completion of end of the year fidelity assessment. Please contact your IU consultant if you are unable to access the reports.

Tier 1 Teams

The Benchmarks of Quality (BOQ) should be completed by any team that did not complete the SET as part of the state-wide recognition process. The BOQ should be completed by the Tier 1 team after staff surveys have been completed (if possible). Each team member should complete the BOQ individually and then meet to reconcile the scores. A final copy of the BOQ, that represents the consensus of the team, should be emailed to your assigned IU consultant before the end of the school year.

BOQ scores will be entered into PBIS Assessment. Teams should review the BOQ results, staff surveys, ODRs, and additional data to draft and ACTION PLAN for the upcoming year. Teams may also use current data to update or modify an existing action plan.

Tier 1 teams who completed the SET as part of the recognition process this year can choose to use the SET ACTION PLAN for action planning.

Advanced Tiers Team

The Benchmarks of Advanced Tiers (BAT) should be completed by any Advanced Tiers team who did not apply for recognition and complete the Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI). The BAT should be completed by the end of the school year and given to your assigned IU facilitator.

The BAT will be entered into PBIS ASSESSMENT. The team should use the results of the BAT and additional data to draft a new ACTION PLAN for the upcoming school year. Teams may also use current data to update or modify an existing action plan.

Teams who completed the TFI can access reports via PBIS ASSESSMENT. The TFI reports along with additional data should be used to create a new ACTION PLAN. Teams may also use current data to update or modify an existing action plan.

2016-2017 Training Calendar

The 2016-2017 Training Calendar is now available and sessions have been uploaded into 48 Carats. Teams should consult with their IU consultant before registering for sessions.

There have been some changes in the training calendar for the upcoming year.

  • Tier 2 training is now listed as Advanced Tiers training. This change was made to highlight the fact that teams receive training in both Tier 2 and 3 strategies and practices.
  • TIPS trainings are now a full day sessions. The sessions will allow teams opportunity to dig deeper into the TIPS process utilizing both academic and behavioral data.
  • Various opportunities regarding classroom management are available.
  • A Coaches Networking session will be offered next year. This will be an opportunity for coaches to spend time asking questions and sharing ideas with other coaches from our region.

Data Analyst Cohort

The primary focus of the PBIS is the use of data for the purposes for problem-solving and decision-making. Next year, an online Data Analyst Cohort will be offered. Five Sessions will be scheduled throughout the school year to discuss specific topics and support the use of data and the TIPS model within monthly data-team meetings.

This session will be listed in 48 Carats in the upcoming weeks. Participants will need to log in to 3 out of the 5 sessions in order to receive credit.

School Climate Survey

PBIS Assessment has designed a brand new School Climate survey! The School Climate Survey Suite is a set of multidimensional surveys designed to measure student perceptions of school climate.

The surveys are brief, reliable, and valid for assessing perceived school climate among students in Grades 3-12. Teams can use each survey separately or in combination to assess perceptions. Each survey includes a set of demographic questions about the participant and a number of questions related to school climate with Likert-type response option.

Schedule of Administration

The surveys can be completed once or twice per academic year. If completed twice in a year, the first administration should be completed within the first 45 days of the school year, and the last administration should be completed within the last 45 days of the school year.
