Successful implementation of a PBIS initiative requires establishing and maintaining a high level of staff buy-in. This includes every member of your staff, from the teachers in the classroom to the administrative and support staff. But how do you begin?
Establishing and Maintaining Staff Buy-in for PBIS
Building trust and collaboration among your staff members is key to successful implementation. In this PBISCon20 webinar, you’ll learn about how Rialto High School in Rialto, California has established a strong PBIS initiative by beginning with staff buy-in.
Presenters for this webinar were Anne Coradaro and Lori Pevoteaux, who are part of the PBIS team at Rialto High School.
Topics covered during this webinar included:
- Establishing your “why”
