Creating a Context for Every Student & Educator to be Successful

3 Days, 20 Sessions, 10 Strands

The Virtual PBIS Leadership Forum is a technical assistance activity of the Center on PBIS and provides an opportunity for the Center to share information on the latest applications of PBIS. Sessions are organized into blocks of single-topic breakout sessions and topic-specific strands and will provide guidance and tools for strengthening prevention-based systems that support the social, emotional, and behavioral needs of students to ensure engagement in learning. The voices and experiences of youth, teachers, and other educational leaders will be featured in presentations and pre-recorded clips throughout this year’s Virtual PBIS Leadership Forum.  Opportunities for dialogue and sharing with other implementers are also provided. 

The Virtual PBIS Leadership Forum will be held October 26th through 28th, 2021. To help ensure participants from each time zone can join live, each day’s schedule will begin at 10:45 am CT (Central Time) with 30-minute breaks interspersed throughout. Sessions will conclude at 3:45 pm CT on October 26th (Day 1) and at 4:15pm CT on October 27th & 28th (Days 2 & 3). A Virtual Poster Session will be offered at 5:15pm on October 26th (Day 1) and Facilitated Discussions will be offered at 5:15 on October 27th (Day 2).  All sessions will be recorded across the three-day event.
