Overview

The School Support Services team assists schools in maximizing instructional time, increasing academic achievement and reducing high school drop-out rates by establishing school-wide positive behavioral systems. These systems, such as Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), contribute to a school climate that is conducive to both teaching and learning, which ultimately provide a firm foundation for the academic success of all students.

Our team offers professional development on evidence-based, data-driven and outcome-focused strategies. The behavioral response to intervention and classroom management programs address barriers to learning including bullying, harassment and other negative student behaviors, cultural competency, tardiness and poor attendance, as well as the specific language and special needs of students.

The mission of our division is to provide a firm foundation for the academic success of all students. We are able to actualize this mission by providing targeted supports for your specific needs. All districts are assigned a representative, or a team of representatives, following a customized needs assessment. Focused on data-driven outcomes, we build an individualized plan for your district from the start to ensure we can chart your progress.
