Event Description

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) are being implemented in over 20,000 schools across 47 states, and Maine has over 100 schools implementing SWPBIS! PBIS has a large and ever growing research base demonstrating positive outcomes, including but not limited to, increased academic achievement and academic engagement, decreased time spent addressing problem behavior, improved positive school climate, and reduction in administration of consequences for problem behaviors such as detentions and suspensions. PBIS is not a packaged curriculum, but an approach made up of essential elements that can be implemented a variety of ways.


This conference includes implementation sessions in which Maine schools will share their experiences implementing PBIS, including preparation, unique practices and systems, and outcomes thus far. Other sessions are designed to support schools seeking to start up or sustain PBIS efforts, including topics such as Primary and Secondary Tier interventions, SWIS (School Wide Information System), RTI, Social Skills, classroom interventions and more

Keynote speakers will be Steve Goodman, director of Michigan’s Integrated Behavior and Learning Support Initiative, and Diane Myers, Associate Professor of Special Education and Chair of the Department of Teacher Education at Texas Woman's University.
