Scaling up in Rural Schools Using Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports
Fitzgerald, Carrie B.; Geraci, Laura M.; Swanson, Michelle
Rural Special Education Quarterly, v33 n1 p18-22 Mar 2014
Many educators struggle with the challenges of effective behavior management. In rural schools, this frequently means that educators are struggling to do more, with little or no additional resources. Positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) is one approach to proactive behavior management. In order to facilitate PBIS in a regional area, researchers implemented a week-long training and year-round ongoing coaching for representative members of participating schools/districts to create a plan for implementation suited to the needs of their schools/districts. This article provides a brief overview of school-wide positive behavioral interventions and supports with a particular focus on one rural school's successful implementation.
