Dear PBIS Rewards –
Our school has been using PBIS Rewards for a while now and we’ve got tons of information! What’s the best way to share it with our staff?
We Love PBIS Rewards
Dear We Love PBIS Rewards –
PBIS initiatives generate a lot of data, it’s true. Keeping track of this data manually can be challenging, however. That’s why PBIS Rewards is a great option for schools – the system accumulates and tracks data, using it to create dozens of useful reports.
Admins and PBIS team members love our reports because they provide accurate information in an easy-to-read format. PBIS Rewards reports take the guesswork out of adjusting a PBIS initiative by giving you a clear picture of what’s happening within your school. You can also use these reports to share PBIS data with your staff.
Some useful reports include:
Both staff and students can benefit from a daily points goal. The Points Dashboard is an overview of how many points are being awarded by staff overall, how many students have met their points goal, and which expectations are being recognized through points. Sharing the Points Dashboard can help your staff to see the connection between points awarded and the success of your PBIS initiative.
Referrals Per Month
Referrals can be an indication of progress within your initiative. Ideally, referrals will decline as your initiative gains traction among your staff and students. Comparing the number of referrals month-to-month can help your staff see how their buy-in to PBIS affects student behavior.
Sharing referral trends across the school district can help to pinpoint problem behaviors as well as the school type where the majority of referrals happen. District administrators can use this report to help staff throughout the district to see where problem behaviors originate and adjust their PBIS initiatives to address these behaviors.
Sharing PBIS Data With Your Staff
Many times, teachers notice a shift in school climate but can’t quite identify the reasons for the change. Sharing this information can help staff to see where progress is being made as well as areas that need greater focus. It can also help to improve teacher buy-in among those who have been reluctant to go all-in on PBIS in their classrooms.
So, now that you know WHY you should share these reports with your staff, let’s talk a little about HOW to share this information. Some options:
- Printed newsletter delivered to each teacher’s inbox
- Email newsletter
- PBIS channel or chat
- Staff meetings
Staff culture can vary from school to school, and you know your staff best. Even the best, most insightful information can be ignored if the delivery format isn’t right for your school. Consider how your staff responds to other communications within the school. Are they overwhelmed with paper? Do they check their email regularly? Does your school have an online message board or chat? Considering questions like these can help you to determine the format for sharing your PBIS information.
Don’t forget that with PBIS Rewards, staff can generate many reports themselves. This can help them to assess the effectiveness of PBIS at the classroom level and identify areas that need additional focus.
PBIS Rewards generates and accurately tracks lots of data that can be useful for staff and administrators alike. Our reports help you to visualize the effectiveness of your PBIS initiative. Share the PBIS Rewards love with everyone on your staff!
