Achieving High Academic and Social Behaviour Outcomes in a First Nations School through PBIS: A Journey

Jonathan Kaiswatum, Principal, Cowessess Community Education Centre
Jean Bacon, Educator, Consultant, Positive Behaviour Interventions and Supports

PROGRAM SUMMARY: When I was appointed principal of Cowessess Community Education Centre (CCEC) in August 2017, a decision was made through a collaborative process with school staff to prioritize high social behaviour student outcomes using the Positive Behaviour Interventions and Supports (PBIS) approach. Our focus on social behaviour (with the support of Jean Bacon) has increased positive school climate and instructional time through planning that is compatible with Indigenous ways of learning. This session will focus on our journey toward improvement in social behaviour through PBIS and our progress to date. There will be opportunities for table/large group sharing and discussion as well as questions from participants.
