2001 Leaders of Learning: Positive Behavior Support Workshop Planned

May 04, 2001

As part of the 2001 Leaders of Learning Workshops, the West Virginia Department of Education is sponsoring a Positive Behavior Support: School-Wide Discipline Planning workshop.  

Dr. Tim Knoster, a leader in the field of Positive Behavior Supports (PBS) will lead the three day workshop. Dr. Knoster will emphasize building-based positive behavior support that will result in the participants: - establishing a team based approach to school discipline - developing a site specific needs assessment - developing 3- 5 operationally defined behavior expectations across core school routines and settings for all students - understanding the methodology of teaching behavior expectations to students - designing a system of acknowledgement/reinforcement of student performance concerning the identified behavioral expectations - establishing problem solving procedures including systems of early intervention for students who are at-risk for developing chronic problem behavior or who are demonstrating this behavior.  

All schools in the state have been sent information concerning the details of this workshop. The first 25 school teams registering will be assured participation.
