Early Childhood PBIS - Year 2, Tier 2 Pathway

Early Childhood Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (EC PBIS) is a multi-tiered behavioral framework for enhancing the adoption and implementation of a continuum of evidence-based interventions to achieve significant academic, behavior and social-emotional outcomes for all students. Tier 2 interventions provide a secondary layer of supports for small groups of students who are not responding to Tier 1 supports. Teams will also learn the function of behavior principles.

Implementation Tier 1 and transitions to Tier 2 (multiple days) - Tier 1 takes a look at team composition, implementation, and using evaluation to determine next steps of EC PBIS implementation. Transition to Tier 2 focuses on action planning surrounding building capacity at Tier 1 while creating the foundations of Tier 2 interventions. Teams will use data to evaluate next steps toward fidelity of Tier 2 interventions. Selected program representatives will attend four days of Trainer of Trainers (TOT) sessions.
