Don’t just look at data. Use it.

The best part of using data in this way is that you don’t need a Professional Learning Community structure. In fact, a PLC format might get in the way of the work by making things take longer. Instead, the most important task is to measure what matters, communicate data to your team, and take action that serves students and teachers effectively.

Beyond the PBIS store

To be honest, a PBIS Store is a lot like the ‘store’ at a Chuck-E-Cheeze. The point might be to encourage positive behavior, but instead we end up with a system that reduces our relationships to transactions that hold far less value for children and youth of any age. And you don’t really need it to implement PBIS anyway.
