What is PBIS at the Targeted Level?

The Targeted Level is designed to provide intensive or targeted interventions to support students who are not responding to school-wide Universal efforts. Common Targeted strategies involve small groups of students or simple individualized intervention strategies. Targeted Level is designed for use in schools for students who are at risk of chronic problem behavior, but for whom high intensity interventions are not essential.

Getting Involved at the Targeted Level 

If you would like to attend the VTPBIS Targeted Leadership Team Training but have not completed your post-implementation SET please contact your SU/District Coordinator, Coach, or State TA to complete it as soon as possible. Once your SET is complete and you receive a score of 80/80 you’ll be eligible to register your team. 

Requirements:

  1. Completed school-wide Universal VTPBIS Implementation
  2. Received 80% (Teaching Expectations)/80% (Overall Mean Score) on Post-Implementation SET or a score of 70% on the Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI) within five months of attending the Targeted Training
