The PBIS Tier One Handbook: A Practical Approach to Implementing the Champion Model

Harness the proactive power of PBIS to improve student behavior. More punishment won’t improve student behavior. Now, there’s a better way: The Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Champion Model. Through this breakthrough alternative, schools have reduced disciplinary incidences by 50% or more by implementing proactive, school-wide prevention practices. This research-based, action-oriented framework written by leading experts in PBIS implementation, will show you how to create a school culture where all students achieve both social and academic success.

You’ll find:

  • A convincing case for why teaching appropriate behavior, rather than punishing inappropriate behavior, is more effective for creating an environment conducive to learning.
  • A step-by-step framework for implementing a comprehensive systems approach, with specific actions to develop, monitor, and sustain each level of the system.
  • Success stories from teachers and administrators who have implemented the PBIS Champion Model.
  • Self-assessment exercises to ensure PBIS implementation starts on the right track and stays there.

Through this approach, you’ll have the tools to create a school environment that accelerates learning and has a positive impact on the emotional, social, academic, and physical well-being of every child.
