FLPBIS Coaching Framework

The FLPBIS Project relies on coaching to implement PBIS with integrity. It is how the latest research is translated into practices used by schools across the state.

“Coaching” helps people work well together and use practices effectively. It reflects a relationship where everyone has an equal say in what takes place, and everyone plays a role in supporting the decisions. The goal of coaching in schools is to enhance PBIS fidelity and student outcomes.

Educators use coaching to:

  • Identify and reduce/eliminate barriers to effective practices
  • Achieve desired goals at the student, classroom, school, district, and/or community level
  • Help those involved to increase their expertise and skills

Coaching is used at every level of education.

Regular data collection and other feedback helps to improve practices.
