Engaging in Data-Based Decision Making for All: Reflecting on the Current Year to Effectively Plan the Next School Year
Heather Peshak George, Ph.D., University of South Florida
Monday, May 13, 2019 3:30–5:00pm Eastern Time
Examining student outcomes is essential for identifying (a) what worked and needs to be sustained as well as (b) what didn’t work and needs to be prevented or changed. This session will describe how data can be used to plan for the next school year within a PBIS framework. Attendees will learn about evaluation and how the various types of data available inform action planning to boost overall student success.
Dr. Heather Peshak George is a Research Professor at the University South Florida and codirects the state-wide FLPBIS:MTSS Project and both the federally-funded OSEP Technical Assistance Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS Center), and the OSSS School Climate Transformation (Florida SCT) SEA grants. She is also the past-President of the Association for Positive Behavioral Support (APBS) and has served on the APBS Board of Directors since 2009 where she currently is serving as an Emeritus Ex-Officio. Dr. George brings extensive experience in providing training and technical assistance in PBIS across the continuum in all settings and in coordinating systems change efforts at the local, state, national and international level to promote an integrated approach to implementing evidence-based practices through a multi-tiered framework. She teaches at USF, serves as a Consulting Editor for Preventing School Failure and has directed over $25 million dollars in external funding. Dr. George received her Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology at Indiana State University and her Doctorate degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Special Education, School Psychology, and Reading at Louisiana State University. Her areas of interest include positive behavior support, school-wide discipline, systems-level change, implementation and function-based behavior support planning, and international applications of PBIS.
