Implementing Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) in a school is a team driven process. The team is made up of an administrator, teachers, non-teaching staff, and parent/community representatives. Students should also be involved at the secondary school level.
Schools submit an expression of interest to their PBL regional coordinator to receive training and support in how to implement PBL. The school's PBL team receives training over a year, and identifies a team coach to assist with implementing the framework. Further professional development and guidance are provided to PBL schools after the training year, based on implementation data and level of need.
Training and support contacts
Each region has a PBL coordinator who provides professional development and coaching support to PBL schools. Queensland state schools should contact their regional offices for contact information.
Information for parents
PBL schools welcome and actively seek parent and community involvement. Parents can be involved with PBL in schools in many ways. They can:
- attend school events, such as school assemblies
- let the school know their preferred method of communication (e.g. email or phone call)
- speak to their child's teacher about their child on a regular basis
- work with the school to address any concerns
- share their child's strengths and successes with the teacher
- volunteer to work in classrooms or elsewhere in the school
- help organise parent and community events at the school
- respond to and help conduct parent and community surveys.
