Team training for implementation of School-wide PBIS (SW-PBIS), provided by the Georgia Department of Education, helps schools gain the knowledge and skills needed to establish behavioral supports at the universal level (i.e., Tier 1) and create a positive school climate. The training workshops teach school teams the decision making framework that should guide selection, integration, and implementation of the best evidence-based academic and behavioral practices. These practices result in improvement of important academic and behavioral outcomes for all students. Having effective school-wide PBIS is necessary before schools are able to successfully establish a continuum of more intensive behavioral supports (i.e., Tier 2, Tier 3, Tier 4 supports). Without first establishing a foundation of supports and demonstrating implementation fidelity at this level, additional behavioral supports, training, or curricula struggle to be effective and do not sustain over time.
