What is Tier 1 (Universal) Primary Prevention?
Tier 1 supports are intended for all students in the school. The core components of prevention include setting clear behavioral expectations, creating an acknowledgment system to reinforce desired behaviors, and developing a system for addressing misbehavior.
Rules and routines are positively stated, easy to remember, and are significant to the school.
A School-Wide Matrix
A school-wide matrix lists the general behavioral expectations and specific expectations for various settings within the school. The matrix provides a clear visual of all school-wide behavioral rules/expectations.
Teaching Appropriate Behavioral Expectations
It is necessary to teach the school-wide expected behaviors to all students. Practices. This is done through Kick-Off and Booster Events, Cool Tool Lessons, Assemblies, and an Acknowledgement System. PBIS schools have a System for Addressing Misbehavior which includes re-teaching and positive reinforcement. An Office Discipline Referral Process is also in place, if needed.
