Schools implementing school-wide positive behavior interventions and supports (SW-PBIS) are seeking to achieve positive school climate and culture. Despite implementation efforts across the country, there are current statistics that suggest specific subgroups continue to be disproportionately disciplined. These subgroups may include race, ethnicity, disability status, gender, as well as socio-economic status. This workshop will focus on using alternatives to suspensions and expulsions as well as the benefits of considering equitable disciplinary practice via an SW-PBIS framework. Participants will discuss the key responsibility areas for implementing a multi-tiered system of support for behavior with a specific focus on culturally sustaining practices.

Objectives

At the end of the training participants will:

  • Recognize and identify alternatives to suspensions and expulsions, as well as equitable disciplinary factors to inform decision-making as culturally responsive leaders.
  • Examine tools and develop an action plan towards self-evaluation and progress around equitable practices.
  • Define and engage in strategies to reduce the need for suspension and expulsion.

  • General Education and Special Education Teachers
  • Administrators
