Coaches’ Clipboard

Coaches support their school-based teams by guiding the implementation process, ensuring the fidelity of PBIS implementation, and acting as liaisons between the PBIS District Coordinator and the school-based PBIS Team.

The PBIS Coach will also

  • Ensure the team is meeting regularly
  • Ensure in-depth record keeping (i.e., product book)
  • Help identify team member roles and ensure equal distribution of roles and responsibilities within the team
  • Ensure the team is using data for decision making
  • Facilitate the Response to Intervention (RtI) process for behavior with school teams
  • Provide and participate in PBIS trainings and team meetings

See Coaches Roles and Responsibilities document for a complete description.
