ACT: Implement and Monitor Plan

There is much more to implementation then just rolling out your plan. Implementation involves changing old ways of doing things, which can be challenging. The people who are essential to the success of your new plan will have varying degrees of comfort with change. Effective implementation involves addressing their concerns so they can feel competent in the new ways of doing things.  

Monitoring implementation of your new policies, programs, and practices will help you identify staff needs—such as ongoing professional development and coaching. In addition, monitoring data outcomes will let you know if the programs, policies, and practices you are using are effective with students. Likewise, you will want to monitor the implementation process to find out if programs, policies, and practices are being implemented as planned.

Our online course will help you plan for effective monitoring and address staff concerns so you can avoid resistance and realize the fruits of your planning.

    Don’t take shortcuts. Follow the prescription. Slow and steady gets you to where you need to be.

  • If you drive it too hard from the district level, it’s not a school priority, and schools won’t own it. Schools have to own PBIS if it’s going to work.

    All schools need to adapt PBIS, make it fit to them. Implement with fidelity, but use whatever is appropriate for your culture.
