District Initiatives

Positive Behavior Support (PBS)
Positive Behavior Support is a behaviorally-based systems approach. It is designed to enhance the capacity of schools, families, and communities to create effective environments that improve the link between research-validated practices and the environments in which teaching and learning occur. A major advance in school-wide discipline is the emphasis on school-wide systems of support that include proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments.

Response to Intervention (RtI)
The Problem Solving – Response to Intervention model is a process whereby schools are trained to analyze and target students’ academic and/or behavior problems so that quality and effective interventions can be implemented. Interventions are data driven and designed to facilitate student success. Each school develops a multidisciplinary team which receives on-going coaching in the following core principles:

  • We can effectively teach all children.
  • Intervene early.
  • Use a multi-tier model of service delivery.
  • Use a problem-solving method to make decisions within a multi-tier model.
  • Use research-based, scientifically validated interventions/instruction.
  • Monitor student progress to inform instruction.
  • Use data to make decisions.
  • Use assessment for three different purposes: universal screening, diagnostic and progress monitoring.
