We have an existing PBIS program.

    We had the same problem.  We ended up creating a Crosswalk that aligned the 7 Mindsets with our PBIS norms.  It was a little rocky at first combining the two languages but as you progress, teachers get better at making the connections and reinforcing during the 7 Mindsets lessons.

    Thanks for the response.  I am not sure what you mean by a Crosswalk.  Do you have a sample?

    It is a matrix that takes each of the 7 Mindsets and specifies how it connects to your PBIS components.  For example, one of our PBIS components is Responsibility.  We were able to map the 100% Accountable Mindset almost directly to the outcomes of our Responsibility PBIS component.  Once we were able to make these connections in writing, we could see and then demonstrate how the 7 Mindsets supported rather than conflicted with our PBIS initiative.  If you would like to see our document, feel free to email me directly.

    Thanks for posting this.  We are having the same challenge.  We are considering just using the 7 Mindsets as our PBIS framework but need to get a number of approvals to do so.  We are a little lucky that we are earlier in the process than you and may be able to adjust up front.
