Discipline and motivation problems can create significant barriers to achieving academic excellence in any school. By implementing positive behavior support at the school-wide, classroom, and (as needed) individual-student levels, school personnel can reduce the degree to which discipline/motivation serve as barriers to learning.

When implemented well at all three levels (school-wide, classroom, and individual), a Response to Intervention framework for behavior emerges in which universal prevention is the primary focus, and when it comes to intervention at Tiers 2 and 3, that the intensity of the intervention and support matches the intensity of student need.

The goal of academic and behavioral RTI is always to insure that every student is successful. A major theme is how staff can learn to shift from reactive punitive procedures to proactive and positive strategies. The first webinar looks at the big picture and each subsequent session will provide more depth on each of the three levels. This webinar series will allow school personnel to identify strengths of implementation of positive behavior support, identify weaknesses, and develop strategies for addressing those weaknesses.
