School Leadership Teams assess the fidelity of implementation to identify what parts of their MTSS are already in place, what needs to be improved, and what still needs to be done.
School Leadership Teams need to know how well PBIS is implemented in their school. The SWPBIS TFI lists the core features of PBIS for each of the three tiers. Each tier can be assessed separately.
The SWPBIS TFI combines features from a variety of fidelity assessments. The result is a single, reliable assessment to assist with implementing and sustaining the three tiers of PBIS.
The school leadership team and other invited respondents review and score the features. Conducting the assessment helps teams examine PBIS in their school in the following areas:
- Evidence-based practices for improving student behavior.
- Systems that create a continuum of support to address the variety of behavior needs among students.
- Data and evaluation for behavior.
The SWPBIS TFI was developed by the OSEP Technical Assistance Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports.
