This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 1,5
  • Skill Level: Introduction
  • Session 1: Promoting Safe and Positive Schools

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. describe how the level of PBIS implementation fidelity impacts overall domains of school climate.
  2. describe how PBIS implementation fidelity and school climate fit into comprehensive roles as outlined by the NASP Practice Model.
  3. identify what, if any, relationships exist between specific subdomains of implementation fidelity and areas of school climate.
  4. explain how the relationship between fidelity and school climate might impact systems-level work in schools.


How does the quality of PBIS implementation impact aspects of school climate? This case study examines survey data from a subset of schools in a statewide training effort. Specifically, practitioners will be able to identify potential relationships and practical implications between PBIS fidelity and school climate.
