Positive Behaviour Support Workshops 2016

View the brochure for additional information

The purpose of the workshop is to establish a framework for schools to develop and implement a school-wide approach to behaviour, social responsibility and academic achievement, that supports the new B.C. Education Plan’s Personal and Social core competency.

In order to take advantage of the Ministry subsidy, schools must register a team that includes at a minimum an administrator and teachers representing regular and special education. Schools may also wish to include a counsellor and paraprofessional on the team. Teams can be at the elementary or secondary level.

Research shows that Positive Behaviour Support is associated with the following student outcomes:

  • Decreases externalizing problem behaviour such as defiance and impulsivity
  • Decreases internalizing behaviour, such as anxiety and withdrawal
  • Increases in academic achievement
  • Increases in on-task student behaviours

In addition to supporting the new BC Education Plan, this workshop also satisfies the Ministry of Education mandate that states that all teachers must be provided with the opportunity to receive training in positive behaviour support. School teams attending this workshop will be equipped to bring professional development ideas back to their own school, and thereby help schools to meet this new Ministry requirement.

Outcomes include:

  • The essential elements of the three tiered approach to implementing a school-wide positive behaviour support framework.
  • Benefits to the school, staff and students when using the PBS approach.
  • Using data for decision making in the area of social responsibility.
  • Positive Behaviour support as a framework and a positive and preventative teaching approach to developing appropriate social skills and behavior.
  • Development of an action plan for implementing positive behaviour interventions and supports school-wide
