Leadership for Behavior

The purpose of the Tier 1 SW-PBS Leadership Team is to provide leadership for the development, implementation, and evaluation of universal procedures in the entire building for all students and staff. Time is the most valuable resource for educators. Meeting and planning time is often scarce, so we must learn to work smarter, maximizing our time and outcomes. Unproductive meetings can dim enthusiasm for your work and slow efforts, while effective team processes excite, inspire, and fuel progress1.

This module will provide information on establishing an efficient and effective SW-PBS Leadership Team that is representative of your school and has established a meeting schedule, working agreements, agenda and notes format, decision-making procedures, team member roles, and a system for collaborative teaming.
