An unintended outcome of principal change can be the shifting away from hard-earned implementation of effective practices in instruction and behavior support. While change can be good, it shouldn’t come at the expense of student improvement. Drawing from experience in implementing school-wide positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS), this webinar will offer strategies for selecting, implementing and sustaining effective practices during periods of principal turnover.

Learner Outcomes:


After completing this program, you will be able to:
