"SCT worked very well for me in completing my continuing education credits in areas that interested me and were applicable to my job. I was more than impressed with the quality of the text books and the caliber of the assignments. The coursework was meaningful and special attention was given to the application of the material to the classroom. I never felt like an assignment was a waste of time. That is so important in our busy lives. SCT even worked with me to modify some assignments so that they would be more relevant to my position as a specialist. I recommend SCT without hesitation."

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.
