University to host Southeast Conference on Positive Behavior Interventions and Support this June
Registration is now open for the sixth annual Southeast Conference on Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) on June 5-6 at the Coastal Georgia Center.
School-wide PBIS is a systemic framework for addressing challenging behaviors within schools with the goal of increasing the academic and social behavior outcomes for all students. School-wide PBIS is the behavioral part of the Response to Intervention (Rtl) triangle that is currently implemented in more than 10,000 U.S. schools.
During this year’s conference, participants will have the option of choosing from four strands for PBIS implementation: PBIS sustainability, ABCs of PBIS, PBIS individualized intervention, and PBIS mental health. Sessions will emphasize preventing school-wide challenging behaviors, teaching desired school-wide behaviors and routines, and ensuring consistency among staff. At the completion of the conference, teachers will have the plans and materials necessary for effective and efficient implementation.
Industry expert Katie Greer will serve as the keynote speaker. Having been featured in everything from USA Today, TIME Magazine, Good Housekeeping and CNN, Greer’s host of personal, professional and educational skills make hers a lecture you will not want to miss.
Early registration for the conference runs through May 19. To register for the conference, click here.
