PBIS is a multi-tiered system of support – a strategically designed framework informed by teaming, data and evidence-based practices. Implicit bias is often manifested in the form of disproportionate discipline. Consequently, Tier 1 Teams need to assure they are detecting for, and addressing, any bias-related, disproportionate disciplinary practices. This session will introduce participants to 8 Key Responsibility Areas that encourage cultural responsiveness. These 8 KRAs feature tools and concepts to address disproportionality, including equitable data teaming, the ladder of inference, and vulnerable decision points.
