The Northwest PBIS Network hosts a range of events for educators, administrators, PBIS/MTSS coaches, and mental health providers working with school districts.  Most of our events are FREE, and have been generously funded by our regional partners. 

We believe that we are all in this together, and training on evidence-based, equitable supports in schools should be available to everyone. Join us! 

The NWPBIS team has been honored to support your work this year!  To help cultivate a culture of rest, we will maintain a light professional development calendar for the month of July, 2021. 

We hope this summer provides time and space for you to begin recovering from the most demanding year of our teaching careers. 

After you get a break, please join us August 9th for our Summer Institute.

Stay tuned in for training dates for 2021-22 school year on the following topics: Coaches Network Meetings, Mental Health in MTSS, Equity in Education, Tier 2 From Readiness to Modified Check In Check Out, Function Based Problem Solving for Teachers, Educator Wellness, and Early Childhood PBIS.
