Baltimore City Schools PBIS Team Leaders Meet (September 2005)

The Baltimore City Public School System held its first PBIS Team Leaders’ Meeting at the Radisson Inn at Cross Keys on September 21, 2005. The objectives of team leader meetings are to get team leaders to network, to  support each other, to learn the similarities and difficulties encountered by other schools in their quest to fully implement  PBIS, and  to overcome their difficulties. Amongst the speakers were Ms. April Lewis, Director of The Drug Abuse and Violence Prevention Unit, who presented a view of the future of schools with PBIS; Mr. Milt McKenna, Staff Specialist and PBIS State Liaison from MSDE, shared the history of PBIS in the city; and Ms. Meghan Nelson-Tracy, Assistant Principal of Dundalk Elementary School, presented a case example of her school, a fully implementing PBIS school in its fourth year. The big lesson as articulated in various ways is that PBIS development in any school is “a process,” each stage dependant on the level of completeness of the previous stage. 

In a continued effort to support schools, BCPSS has set dates for the next three TEAM LEADER MEETINGS for implementing schools as follows:

October 26th 2005 4:00PM-6:00PM

November 16th 2005 4:00PM-6:00PM

February 22nd 2006 4:00PM-6:00PM
