Learn how this milestone in our accelerated solution integration helps schools address safety and student wellness through a more seamless and holistic approach
In late 2022, PBIS Rewards joined Navigate360, the nation’s premier provider of holistic solutions for school safety and student wellness. Since then, we have taken quick steps to make connections within our products to make our systems easier, seamless and more informative. We are excited to share our latest release and the completion of phase one integration between PBIS Rewards Advanced Referral System (ARS) and Navigate360’s Behavior Intervention & Restorative Practices offering.
By simplifying the user experience within the PBIS Rewards ARS feature, users can assign recommended grade-appropriate Behavior Intervention lessons to specifically address the problem behavior being documented in the referral. This expedites the school’s ability to turn discipline into a learning opportunity. It also promotes the natural synergy between PBIS and SEL practices, providing additional opportunities to address student needs.
“In a time where teachers and school staff are carrying a heavy task to address learning loss, they are also tasked with simultaneously managing disruptive and concerning behavior that has accelerated post-pandemic. According to EAB, nearly 60% of teachers reported that pressure to boost learning loss and academic outcomes left them with insufficient time to address increased behavioral issues within their classrooms. If we continue to let these issues go unresolved, we will continue to prevent our schools and teachers from getting to the business of learning. We must do better – for our educators and for our students.”
— JP Guilbault, Chief Executive Officer at Navigate360
Making Systems Easier, Seamless and More Informative
For many schools and districts, behavioral management systems are fragmented and dependent on manual processes, rendering them less effective. Teachers and behavioral intervention teams struggle to provide efficient, practical interventions, which can produce limited results and dissatisfaction among staff. This release makes it easier for school staff to identify and assign age-appropriate lessons associated with minor and major behavior infractions. These lessons work in tandem with their PBIS, MTSS, and Restorative Practices programs. By addressing low-level concerning behavior early with ARS and Behavioral Intervention lessons, we are helping schools reduce repeat infractions – by up to 58% in some cases – increasing both teaching and learning time.
How it Works
When using the Advanced Referral System (ARS) feature within PBIS Rewards, Behavior Intervention lessons display as a possible administrative action or response on the major referral form within ARS. The lessons are based on the student’s grade level and the problem behavior(s) associated with the referral.
Additional updates in this release include:
- Users can select the “Random” button on the Groups page multiple times without having to close the window and reopen it.
- Minor referrals have a “Back To Group” button and major referrals will automatically send you back to your group after submission of the form.
- Student App updates that include the ability to favorite store items, visibility of all point comments, in-app indicators to show the addition of new data, and a patch to Google SSO.
