Dear Prospective PBIS Implementer,

Thank you for your interest in the Illinois PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) Network. It is our pleasure to share with you our knowledge on creating and maintaining safe and effective learning environments. To learn more about PBIS, as well as how to begin initial implementation in your district, follow these three steps: 

      1. For initial information…

The following materials will help answer your questions about PBIS and its implementation in your District.

      2. To answer additional questions, and review the district and school commitments necessary for implementation…

See the PBIS Network training calendar to register your district planning team* for the next available AS50: Overview of PBIS and Necessary District Commitments in your region.

Note: The initial district planning team consists of central office administrators including (when possible), the superintendent or his/her designee, Director of Special Education, and one or more school principals.

The AS50 training is a free, half-day session, where district leaders will receive an overview of the PBIS process including discussion on systems, data, and practices at the district and school-wide level. In addition, participants will review the necessary district commitments for implementing PBIS according to the Commitment for Success Agreement.

      3. After you have attended the overview session…

Complete the Commitment for Success Agreement Form (PDF) and submit to the Illinois PBIS Network statewide offices:

550 Quail Ridge 
Westmont, Illinois 60559
- or -
Fax to (630) 325-2605

Within two weeks, a PBIS Technical Assistance Coordinator (TAC) will contact you. The TAC will meet with your designated district leader, and guide them in completing the necessary documents for start-up activities. The following documents will be used to prepare your district for PBIS training and implementation:

Thank you and best of luck as you pursue a systems change.
