Roane County SWPBS Timeline
 2006; Director of Schools asked principals to attend a
  meeting to hear a presentation from Dr. Jennifer
 2006: A couple of schools began immediate
 Summer of 2007: My high school team was trained for
  Tier 1 implementation; three other schools were also
 2007: Roane County District Leadership Team was
Attending Every Meeting
 During the summer of 2007; I moved to my position
  in the central office and joined Mr. McLoud as one of
  two SWPBS coaches for our county.
 It was our duty to attend every Tier 1 meeting going on
  in our county. We worked out the schedule where they
  would meet once, sometimes twice, per month on
  different days.
 At first , we took the role in leading the meetings, then
  we allowed the team to assign facilitators who led their
  own meetings.
Tier 1 (cont’d)
 As our implementing schools began to see success, we
  saw interest increase in a few of our other schools.
 We now have 12 or our 17 schools who are
  implementing Tier 1 of SWPBS; six of those 12 are now
  implementing Tier 2.
 All of our schools now have Internal Coaches; this
  allows Mr. McLoud and I more time to now attend Tier
  2 meetings while internal coaches handle Tier 1
 We still drop in on Tier 1 meetings occasionally.

              Internal Coaches
 Selection is crucial; must have right personality
 Cannot be someone who is easily discouraged, nor can
    it be someone who is overbearing
   Must see importance of meeting every month
   Must have a working relationship with administration
   Helps to have someone that people are willing to
   We meet with our internal coaches once every two
    months (go over meeting procedures, discuss
    assessments, listen to each school’s celebrations)

 Working together to provide Tier 3 interventions
     Student Support Services
 Three teams that consist of a student support worker
  and family support worker
 Schools have option of sending a referral to me for
  students who do not seem to be benefiting from Tier 1
  and Tier 2 services.
 Referral is reviewed with SWIS data for the student.
 I review the referral to see if the school has exhausted
  all other options for this student.
 If approved, referral is sent to appropriate Student
  Support team
     Student Support (cont’d)

  student; offers counseling, connections with other

  requested for regular education students; determines
  triggers for certain behaviors and develops a plan to
  help staff deal with these behaviors

  remove obstacles for special education students

  successful in their implementation. (Faculty
  breakfasts, certificates, recognition at Board meeting)

  SWPBS (both Tier 1 and Tier 2 interventions)

  the help of our Student Support Department and
  School Psychologists.
