Recognition Process Overview 2012-13


Overview 2012-13

Once each school year, the Illinois PBIS Network formally recognizes schools that demonstrate implementation and sustainability of the PBIS process through measurable criteria at the Tier 1/Universal, Tier 2/Secondary, and Tier 3/Tertiary levels. Schools that want to be recognized for their implementation of PBIS for the 2012-13 school year are required to submit an application, along with supporting documentation, for one of the six levels of school recognition: Start-Up, Emerging, Implementing, Implementing Plus, Fully Implementing, or Exemplar.

The Illinois PBIS Network Phases of Implementation (PoI) is the primary tool by which implementation is measured, and is an integral part of the application process. The PoI has been updated to v4.1 for the 2012-13 school year to clarify the benchmarks around family engagement, Tier 2 and Tier 3, and ensure benchmarks are aligned with effective implementation in each phase. See instructions on the PoI Rubric for the procedures associated with this self-assessment tool, including the roles of the External Coach and the Technical Assistance Coordinator. It is recommended that the PoI be used initially in November and updated in April for effective self-assessment and action-planning.

Depending on the level of recognition a school is seeking, other self-evaluation and/or outside evaluation tools used in PBIS implementation will also need to be submitted with the application. Complete details are indicated on the applications for each level.

Updates for 2012-13

Key Updates to Recognition Application Criteria for 2012-13:
  1. For Start-up and Emerging levels of recognition, there were no changes from 2011-12.
  2. For Implementing level, the Tier 2/Tier 3 Tracking Tool needs to show documentation that it has been used to track students responding to one or more Tier 2 intervention (Check-in Check-out, Social/Academic Instructional Groups, Tier 2 with Individual Features).
  3. A new level, Implementing Plus, has been added. See table below for the requirements.
  4. For the Fully Implementing level, the following PoI v4.1 phases need to be in place:
    • Tier 1, Phases I, II, and III
    • Tier 2, Phases I, II, and III
    • Tier 3, Phases I and II  
  1. For a school to be recognized at the Exemplar level, the following PoI v4.1 phases need to be in place:
