PI036: The School Psychologist as PBIS Leader

Friday, February 21, 2014 11:00 AM–11:45 AM


Learn how our district of 18,000 students implemented PBIS programs which reduced suspensions by 50%, expulsions by 78%, and saved the district over $250,000 annually. We also reduced our Specific Learning Disability population from 1164 to 696 (40%). We will share the lessons we learned along the way, and also share our plans for the next part of the journey, including implementation of restorative practices.
