Meet Recently Endorsed NEPBIS Trainers!

To become endorsed, each trainer completed and met competencies of the rigorous Northeast PBIS Training of Trainers (NEPBIS TOT). As part of this work, each trainer demonstrated the ability to effectively train and support schools in implementing PBIS with fidelity. This first cohort of endorsed trainers brought a wealth of expertise to the NEPBIS TOT, as they were already experienced PBIS trainers.

If you are looking for high-quality, effective PBIS training, coaching, and technical assistance for your schools, these are your professionals.

Are you interested in PBIS training for your school or district?

The University of Connecticut/PBIS Center (UCONN/PBIS), is pleased to offer an intensive professional development opportunity designed to train school and district teams in their development and implementation of school and district-wide systems of behavioral supports and interventions and thereby improve school climate for all students.  Based on the extensive research supporting the policies, practices and procedures of the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports Framework (www.pbis.org), these trainings – the NEPBIS Academy - will teach the structures, processes, resources, and collaboration needed for school-wide implementation of PBIS. The NEPBIS Academy will support schools specifically in Massachusetts and nearby communities.

MTSS: PBIS Academy Description

The PBIS Academy will support district and school level implementation teams and coaches to build internal local capacity to implement school-wide PBIS.  Composed of full day trainings and on-site technical assistance and consultation, participating teams will receive on-going support for multiple years.
