Asking for updated Functional Behavior Assessment is a good idea, but collaborating to get the PBIS plan, and any consequences right, can be a big struggle for parents. I have seen many, many plans with inappropriate steps and follow up consequences-everything from missing recess to sitting alone at lunch to cleaning rooms or equipment after school. It’s not just the overall policies, it’s how school personnel, from teachers to administrators, view the plans, and how they use them. There is a great deal of misinformation and poor training around this. Parents need to be consistently vigilant. Best Practices don’t just happen automatically.
