"After having taken multiple classes through SCT Grad Classes, I would highly recommend this program to other educators. Professor Berg is flexible, understanding, and a great resource when questions arise, and each of the classes that are offered relate directly to specific topics and issues pertinent to education today. The ability to take classes and work at your own pace through SCT is a great bonus for busy educators."

PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports): Introduction and Implementation

Online or Print Based Course Online Course Printed Course


One of the foremost advances in school-wide discipline is the emphasis on school-wide systems of support. Schools that include proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors are seeing a shift to a more positive school environment. Instead of using a piecemeal approach of individual behavioral management plans, schools that are embracing PBIS / PBS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support) are offering a continuum of positive behavior support for all students within a school in both classroom and nonclassroom settings. This course introduces the components of PBIS as well as some preliminary steps to implement it within one's school. In addition, this course also focuses specifically on creating and sustaining primary (school-wide), secondary (classroom), and tertiary (individual) systems of support that improve desired behavior. Students taking this course will come away with a clear understanding of PBIS and of how student learning can be improved as a result of a well-implemented, well-maintained proactive school-wide discipline plans. School personnel that are in the preliminary stages of bringing PBIS into their buildings, may benefit from taking this course with multiple members of their leadership team.
