National PBIS Leadership Forum & Call for Presenters @ Hilton Chicago
Oct 3 – Oct 4 all-day

About the National PBIS Leadership Forum

The National PBIS Leadership Forum is a technical assistance activity of the OSEP Technical Assistance Center on PBIS and provides an opportunity for the Center to share information on the latest applications of PBIS.

Leadership teams early in the process of PBIS implementation will gain information about initiating implementation and obtain examples of successful early development. State and District leadership teams moving toward larger scale implementation will have access to strategies and examples of successful scaling of PBIS including integration of academic and behavioral components of RtI. Leadership teams focused on advanced issues around evaluation, secondary and tertiary content, and coordination of coaching cadres will gain access to examples and strategies that are moving PBIS forward.

Participants will come away from the forum with the knowledge on how to develop/obtain advanced training on a range of topics and how to best organize and deliver training for their schools, districts, and other stakeholders. All sessions will focus on fidelity and implementation and include data and implementation examples. Find more information online.
