OJJDP in partnership with the CREA will:
  • Provide coaching supports to PBIS school and district coaches
  • Provide coaching supports to PBIS leadership teams
  • When possible, provide coaching to school teachers
  • Participate in school and district PBIS lead team meetings
  • If we are able to meet in person for Cohort training we will provide team training regionally.
  • If in-person training is not possible because of public health concerns, alternate methods of training will be offered.
  • The training, coaching, and technical assistance will focus on the core features of PBIS.
  • If interested, provide access to, and cover the cost for the online School-Wide Information System (SWIS). This is a behavioral incident tracking system designed to monitor and inform behavioral practices. If teams would like access to SWIS during the two-year training sequence, it is provided at no cost. The annual cost of SWIS after training is $350.00. More information about SWIS.
  • Assist with the collection of data.
  • Cover the cost of trainers and training materials for all participants.
Participating Districts/Schools/Programs are expected to:
  • Identify representative teams (including an administrator such as principal, vice principal, or assistant principal) to attend ALL team trainings if assessments warrant based on scores.
  • Cover the cost of travel, lodging, and substitutes, as needed.
  • Select and support a PBIS coach with the time and leadership role to guide and the team's implementation of PBIS with fidelity and the capacity to sustain the framework. 
  • Complete all PBIS implementation and action planning assessments (TFISAS, etc.)
  • Assign someone on the PBIS team to complete Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI) assistance and walkthroughs (a walkthrough is a structured observation) at other schools. Note: This could be the coach or another team member, but it is strongly recommended that this is not the building administrator for time and scheduling purposes. 
  • This person is known as a “TFI external facilitator”. The TFI external facilitator is required to accompany the CREA Coach in a modeling session. The TFI external facilitator for your team will need to complete four walkthroughs for another school—each in the spring of the year in years 2-5 of the grant.
  • School teams will complete a TFI in the fall and winter. All schools will complete an annual walkthrough and administer a TFI in the spring to assess fidelity of Tier 1 implementation. Additional supports and technical assistance will be provided during cohort training.
  • Collect, utilize, and report disaggregated student data about your school or program to improve equitable outcomes across demographics including race, ethnicity, disability, English learner, free/reduced-price meals and other publicly reported outcomes.

    Your school probably has office discipline referrals (ODRs) for major behavior incidents. It also may have a system for minor referrals that are managed within the classroom and other group settings. A decision support data system can summarize and provide information about individual students, groups of students, or the entire student body over any time period.

    Discipline data systems that allow instantaneous access to graphs of frequency of problem behavior events by behavior, location, time of day, and student can be used for effective and efficient decision making.

    This will help your team quickly review school-wide referral patterns, and give you the ability to look at possible disproportionality by ethnicity, detailed information about individual student needs, and year-end reports to guide action planning and celebrate your efforts.

    Please outline your discipline data system by providing utilized reports, log entries, or program data below.

    Please Note: The data system must be in place by 10/9/2022. Continued training opportunities will be contingent upon having a data system in place by that date.
