PBIS....another new thing to add to our plate.....But this is going to taste GOOD!!!!!
The true "sign" that this was the right philosophy and time for us to begin the PBIS journey, was that we were told to take a year to collect data and to plan out our phase in of PBIS. Since we had already created a 4 year plan to begin our full implementation of our RTI plan, and RTI for Behavior concerns was to begin in the 2011-2012, the timing was perfect.
As I sat and listened to the various speakers, I grew more enthusiastic to begin using PBIS. Once again I was told to slow down and prepare. It won't be easy but I am actually looking forward to collecting data and planning things slowly as we build our program. Not easy for the guy of action and little patience. So I will collect my data, slow down and plan with my leadership team and go out gain what other insight and knowledge I can this year. It's going to be great!!!!
