schools using an evidenced-based problem-solving framework. This framework
supports the development of a planned whole school approach to wellbeing and a
school culture strongly focused on learning.
These Essential Components will help address inappropriate
behaviour in schools and create the context for learning. They are the
foundation for implementation across all three tiers of PBL
Outcomes are locally
determined and are contextually relevant, measureable and achievable. These
include social, emotional, behavioural and academic outcomes for children
and young people and are embraced by all staff and families.
Practices arestudent focused. Once the desired outcomes are established, the school
identifies the evidence-based practices, strategies and interventions that
support students. These practices should be based
on the school’s needs, be relevant, effective, and efficient. They are based
upon the principles of applied behavior analysis, are research based, and
embrace a positive, proactive, and instructional philosophy.
Data includes information that is used to identify the
current status, the need for change and to evaluate the impact and effect of
interventions or practices. Data on student behaviour, academic performance,
attendance and other key indicators is considered by the team. By reviewing
data frequently, school teams can make decisions to select, modify or
discontinue practices based on need.
Systems are staff focused. It is the formalisation of procedures that
support all staff to enable the accurate and sustainable implementation of
practices to support students. It can include strategic decisions around the
use of resources including personnel, funding, policies and training.
