We hope you continue to be safe and well during this historic and discomforting time -- battling a pandemic alongside confronting systemic racism. We know that those who choose careers in education encounter health and race issues on a daily basis, and have the power to educate students, families, and communities about such topics. We know that by implementing PBIS, you are front and center as an advocate for the collective well-being. Please continue to use your voice!

 

As we previously mentioned- we are going virtual out of respect for the health and safety of our presenters, participants, and staff, due to the potential hazards of an in-person event during the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis.  We are excited to share additional details about our three-day virtual event! To ensure participation across all time zones, we are shifting to a modified, 3-day program with several sessions each day.

  • Day 1 will include a keynote followed by 2 breakouts, offering single session topics during each breakout.
  • Days 2-3 will offer 8 different topic-specific strands with three consecutive sessions per strand/topic.
  • Breaks are built in to each day so you can plan your lunch, coffee, or stretching!
This schedule will allow participants to select specific content areas for in-depth technical assistance sessions on several applications of the PBIS Framework and will offer unique opportunities to network with others -- including Q&A dialogue with the presenters.

 

There will be a $50 registration fee for this event. Registration is expected to open in August. Breakout session and topic-specific strand selections will be made at the time of registration.


We hope you will save the dates and join us virtually!

Update on the 2020 National PBIS Leadership Forum

 

We hope you continue to be safe and well during this current world health crisis. As we continue monitoring the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our schools and communities, our first concern is to respect the health and safety of our presenters, participants, and staff, which we have determined will not be possible with an in-person National PBIS Leadership Forum of 2,000 people. Instead, we will be offering a virtual PBIS Forum on October 21, 22, & 23, 2020. The format will be tailored to the challenges and opportunities of connecting, learning, and supporting each other while remaining in or close to home.

 

Although the format will shift, we will maintain our focus on strategies, tools, and resources to support the implementers, leaders, coaches and trainers of PBIS in states and districts nationwide. The 2020 Virtual PBIS Leadership Forum will allow participants to select specific content areas for in-depth technical assistance sessions on several applications of the PBIS Framework and will offer unique opportunities to network with others including Q&A dialogue with the presenters.

 

To ensure participation across all time zones, we are shifting to a modified 3-day program with several sessions each day. Please bookmark our Forum website and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay up-to-date on announcements and registration.  We hope you will save the dates and join us virtually!
