Impacts of Implementing PBIS
with Fidelity in CA
Webinar Training Description:
In this webinar, the California PBIS Coalition along with Dr. Nicholas Gage and Nicolette Grasley-Boy from the University of Florida will examine the link between implementing PBIS with fidelity and a number of important outcomes including school exclusion and alternative placements for students receiving special education services. We will examine how PBIS fidelity data is collected in California schools and examine the use of data related to implementation and discipline.  Dr. Nicholas Gage will discuss the outcomes of a recent statewide evaluation which found significant decrease in suspensions and office discipline when PBIS is implemented with fidelity.
