Four Things!!


  • Walk Through: This Thursday at 7:45 am, Matt Jansen (Wass Elementary in Troy) and his staff welcome visitors interested in seeing “ Wolf Packs” in action. A video overview of the Wolf Packs can be found here. You might also be interested in how the Wass staff braided three important frameworks for strategies in their SIP. Goals and global, general strategies remain the same over time; specific activities might change as needed. Simple! Focused! Be looking for more dates and schools soon.



  • Looking for a High School that has had success implementing a PBIS framework in their school. Please contact me if you are willing to share insights with a new school. Thank you!



  • Cafeteria Chaos! A large elementary with limited resources is looking to environmentally engineer lunch time. If you have any clever tips, tricks or routines, please email me.



  • MiStar Behavior Modules: We are hosting 2 webinars to introduce the new Behavior modules to your school administrators. The webinar will cover the use of the Class Behavior module for classroom level interventions, the new electronic Referral, and the Student Behavior module (which replaces the Front Office Behavior module). We will also look at new PBIS-SWIS style reports. Users MUST register using the links below to gain access to the webinar. Once registered, the user will receive a confirmation email with the conference call information and the meeting password.
