Translations Coming Soon!
The classroom teacher has primary responsibility for guiding student behavior in order to create a positive learning environment that supports academic achievement. Utilization of positive behavior interventions promotes academic, social, and emotional growth while preventing or reducing challenging behaviors. Data-driven, trauma-informed actions, instruction, and appropriate, responsible strategies guide student behavior and facilitate an orderly and effective learning climate.
