Synopsis: Tulsa Public Schools (TPS) mental health agencies successfully decreased suspension rates by 30-50% by creating Tulsaƕs Positive Behavior Intervention Services (PBIS) model to provide intensive therapeutic services at 11 schools with the highest suspension rates. Taylor Young will facilitate discussion of best practices implementation, research-based approaches used and school data. The Tulsa model includes three intervention levels incorporating behavior coaches, social workers, therapeutic services and Wraparound Tulsa (Systems of Care). Descriptions also include ongoing transition from disconnected community programs and services to a network of community and district partners with the ultimate goal of reaching all 88 TPS schools.
