2019-2020 DE-PBS Phase Recognition

This multi-phase system provides an opportunity to recognize schools that continue to grow and expand their PBS programing to support students across all three tiers as part of a multi-tiered system of behavior support.  This year the following phases are available for schools that are interested in participating in this voluntary application process:

  • Phase 1: Tier 1 – School-wide PBS,
  • Phase 2: Tier 1 – Advanced School-wide PBS,
  • Phase 3: Tier 2 – Targeted Team (Problem-Solving Conversations), and
  • Phase 4: Tier 2 – Targeted Team (Systems Conversations).

In addition to the applications, you will find Frequently Asked Questions and responses. We encourage teams to review the application and FAQ documents to determine which Phase is a good match for implementation efforts this school year.  The applications structure the opportunity for teams to reflect on current practices and data in order to plan for next year.

Please note that the Word versions of the applications are available to help the team prepare, but final submission will be done via the new online survey application.

After review of the documents, if you have further questions please contact your district coaches or a DE-PBS staff member.

Thank you and good luck!
