This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 2,6
  • Skill Level: Introduction
  • Session 11: Consultation and Collaboration With Educators and Parents

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. gain familiarity with a collaborative, data-driven coaching process designed to enhance teachers' fidelity of classroom PBIS implementation.
  2. consider teacher perceptions of commonly used coaching strategies and processes.
  3. tailor coaching processes to be maximally acceptable to teacher participants.


Adapted from Reinke et al.’s (2008) Classroom Check-Up, the Classroom Check-Up-PBIS (CCU-PBIS) is a coaching model designed to enhance teachers’ fidelity of classroom PBIS implementation. This exploratory study reports the results of a survey on teacher perceptions of the CCU-PBIS' social validity (i.e., acceptability, feasibility). Attendees will learn how to tailor coaching and consultative processes so they are maximally acceptable to teacher participants.
