Dear District-based Coaches and Administrators,

We hope your school year is off to a good start! 

As the behavior focus area of the Illinois Statewide Technical Assistance Collaborative (ISTAC), the Illinois PBIS Network is undergoing some organizational changes.  One change, starting in October, is the reassignment of half of our field-based staff to work on a foundational level curriculum across all of the ISTAC focus areas.  We are excited about this work that includes PBIS implementation as a core component for school improvement.  However, these state-level changes require us to modify our communication structure in order to more efficiently support PBIS implementing districts.

Under our previous structure, all districts were assigned to a specific PBIS Technical Assistance Coordinator (TAC) for personalized communication and support.  Since many of the PBIS TACs will be focused on ISTAC curriculum development, we are moving to a more centralized structure for answering questions and providing information about PBIS tools and processes.  Therefore, we ask that you please direct your questions about the following areas of PBIS accordingly:
