model schools  
 

The purpose of the FLPBS:MTSS Project’s Model School program is to identify schools that exemplify best practices in the implementation of positive behavior support systems. FLPBS:MTSS Model Schools may serve as demonstration sites. Artifacts submitted through the online application may be accessible on our website to showcase practices for other schools looking to implement a multi-tiered intervention approach for behavior. The FLPBS:MTSS Project recognizes Bronze, Silver and Gold model schools. Click here for more information about our model school process.

A FLPBS:MTSS Model School is one that has met specific criteria and has reported innovative, creative, and functional ways of supporting PBS:MTSS. Model Schools demonstrate effective methods of: (1) utilizing their data to better serve all students with a specific focus on equitable systems to support student behavior, (2) extending PBS implementation to develop effective Tier 2 and Tier 3 behavioral systems (3) consistently and proactively implementing strategies to prevent problem behavior, teach appropriate behavior, and utilize effective responses to make appropriate behaviors more likely (rewards) and inappropriate behaviors less likely (consequences), (4) extending PBS:MTSS throughout the campus and partnering with the community and parents, and (5) including PBS:MTSS into daily activities across all available teaching opportunities. PBS:MTSS Model Schools have made a commitment to high quality implementation and it shows!

Important Notice:
Update to the 2014-2015 Application

Release Date: April 10th, 2015

In response to significant and troubling statewide trends reflecting disproportionality in student discipline data, the FLPBS:MTSS Project has revised the model school application for the 2014-15 school year. The current application now requires ALL schools to describe the current status of their efforts to disaggregate discipline data and use the problem-solving process to achieve or maintain equitable discipline for students of each race, ethnicity, ESE status or any combination of these. Since this is a new item and one which many schools are unprepared to collect data for or respond to, it will be scored leniently this year. This information will provide a baseline measure of how Florida schools are addressing disproportionate discipline. Next year there will be more stringent requirements for Model School applicants. 2015-2016 Model Schools will need to demonstrate disaggregation of data and use of problem solving to improve practices.

The FLPBS:MTSS Project recognizes that disaggregating data may be a new concept for some of our schools, and has prepared several resources to assist with this requirement. They are provided below on this web page.

The FLPBS:MTSS Project has also removed some model school application questions to allow schools to maximize their focus on achieving success for all groups of students.  A summary of all changes to the 2014-2015 application may be found below on this webpage.

Model School Application and Supporting Resources:

Resources for Addressing Disproportionality:

  • School Data Template (Excel) Automatically calculate multiple measures of disproportionality so that schools may see if their discipline outcomes are equitable across racial/ethnic and educational categories (Special Education and General Education).

  • Understanding multiple measures of disproportionality (PDF handout) - This resource summarizes the different measures provided in the School Data Template and explains how they may be used.

  • Using Data to Address Disproportionality (recorded module)This recording provides in-depth instruction and examples of the different metrics for identifying and monitoring disproportionality.

  • Overview of culturally-responsive PBIS (recorded module)This recorded FLPBS:MTSS chat provides an introduction to Culturally Responsive-PBIS, and ideas for culturally-responsive Tier 1 implementation strategies.

  • Individualized assistance (Phone consultation) – Applicants may schedule a phone conference with members of the RtIB Database team to discuss how to use the School Data Template, and answer any questions about Question 2 of the Model School Application. Please note that these sessions may fill up quickly, so visit our SurveyMonkey link to register for a session.
