Why do you need a PBIS Action Plan?

An action plan is a list of steps you take to achieve your goal. The two-part question that we want to answer with different types of data is:

  • "Are we doing what we said we were going to do?"
    • Effort Data "How much, and how often?"
    • Fidelity Data "How well?"
  • "Is it benefiting students and families?"
    • Outcome Data
You may want to use the following action plan templates with your PBIS team.

Families are important members of the school communities. When schools and families work together toward their common goal of helping all children to be successful, it is much more likely to happen. Families have valuable insights and information about how their children learn best and what types of environmental supports are helpful to them.
