The Behavior Intervention Outline is great souse for planning a PBS. It outlines the needed steps for planning and creating a BIP or PBS. For the busy teacher, it is a systematic approached to conducting an FBA and developing a positive behavior plan.

The Daily Tracking sheet is a great resource tracking behaviors throughout the school day. The cells can be changed to make it child specific. Once an intervention has been put in place, the next step is to monitor the behavior to determine the effectiveness of the intervention. This is a daily tracking sheet I give the paraprofessionals to track student behavior. This is the data we use to monitor student performance and adjust interventions as needed. In addition, the data can be placed into an excel spreadsheet and put into the form of a chart. The chart makes it easier for students to visualize there progress.

Assessment Calendar— It is important for all member or grade levels to have the same type of assessment and same cycle for collecting data. This is important for teams when they get togther to look at RTI or progress monitoring. I plan to use Table 2.3 in our book to share with or team.

PM 1 10/9- 10/3
PM 2 10/30-11/3
PM 3 11/27- 12/1
PM 4 12/8- 12/22

Winter Benchmark 1/15- 1/26
PM 5 2/12 - 2/16
PM 6 3/5- 3/9
PM 7 4/2- 4/6
PM 8 4/23 - 4/27

Teams who are supporting students who engage in moderate to severe levels of problem behavior should start the functional assessment process by conducting a person-centered plan. Person-centered planning (PCP) is an ongoing problem-solving process that is used by a group of people who are interested in helping a student build a lifestyle based upon his or her preferences, needs, and choices. The purpose of a PCP is to create a context in which a student can create a vision for how he or she wants to live and then to brainstorm, strategize, and plan to make that vision a reality. Person-centered planning builds on a student's natural skills, talents, and gifts in order to create a more satisfying life for the individual and increase community participation.

Person-centered planning is often implemented early in the functional assessment since it provides important quality of life information. Another reason implementing person-centered planning first is advantageous is because increasing a student's quality of life can have an impact on problem behavior. When positive lifestyle changes are implemented, the student's problem behavior may decrease, making more comprehensive positive behavior support plans unnecessary. On the other hand, significant lifestyle changes may be more complex and require some time to complete. A PBS plan may be necessary while larger lifestyle interventions are implementent.

Both of these site provide a wonderful way to complete assessments for behavior and academics. They are easy and provide videos to help in unserstanding of the assessments.

This website offers information on Data Based Decision Making sharing three tools on how to implement school wide behavior supports. The checklists are comprehensive and require many team members to participate, analyze, and determine how to use the information to increase academic success and decrease behavior.
