• Although PAPBS was originally formed to support school-wide implementation of Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS), the principles and structure are appropriate to also support program-wide implementation of PBIS in early childhood settings. Therefore, the PAPBS state leadership team has added members from the Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL), Early Intervention Technical Assistance (EITA) and the Pennsylvania Key to Quality (PA-Key). The leadership team and appropriate subcommittees are working on adapting the process that currently recruits, trains and supports school-wide network facilitators to also appropriately develop early childhood facilitators. Once trained, facilitators may offer their services to other early childhood settings who are looking for coaching support.
