This helpful, plain-language handbook provides solid, detailed guidelines for coaches, administrators, and team members for implementing and sustaining school-wide positive behaviour interventions and supports (PBIS).

Full of engaging anecdotes from on-the-ground experts, this comprehensive resource helps PBIS teams overcome the obstacles of staff buy-in and offers solutions for sustaining a successful school program. Customisable forms, checklists, and graphic organisers, sample graphs and figures will help teams chart, manage, and interpret data with ease.

Positive school climates are not achieved through suspensions, detentions, calls to parents, or visits to the principals office. Rather, lasting change is achieved through collective analysis and data-driven decision making.

Downloadable digital content includes PDF presentation and customisable forms.

"The PBIS Team Handbook is the new go-to guide for PBIS coaches and administrators. It not only gives you step-by-step instructions on how to fully and successfully implement the program in your building, but it also breaks it down and humanizes the process. It provides many practical forms that can be used by PBIS teams and coaches. The handbook makes you think of not only the impact on your students, but also the impact on members of your team and teachers and staff in your building. This is a must-readÑno matter what stage you are at in PBIS implementation."
- Cristina Dobon-Claveau, district PBIS coordinator, Western Placer Unified School District in Lincoln, California

"ÒThis book is a very accessible summary of the process of implementing and sustaining schoolwide PBIS. It addresses the best practices in PBIS from the perspective of people who have been involved with it on the ground level and who are willing to offer advice on issues that implementers often face. Teachers and others involved in implementation will find the insights of the authors helpful as they undertake their own journey to support meaningful behavioral outcomes for students. A must-have for PBIS team members in schools."
- Kevin J. Filter, Ph.D., associate professor of psychology, Minnesota State University, Mankato

"Changing behaviors in students can be difficult; however, changing the way adults view those behaviors is a challenge. This book takes teams through a step-by-step process that not only implements but also provides the tools needed to sustain a schoolwide behavioral support system in order to build an environment in which teachers can teach and students can learn."
- Amy Piotrowski, special education coordinator at Chanhassen Elementary, Chaska Middle School East, and Integrated Arts Academy
