Changes in federal and state laws have directed schools to focus more on helping all children learn by addressing problems earlier within the general education setting.

These laws emphasize the importance of providing high quality, scientifically-based instruction and interventions, by holding schools accountable for the adequate yearly progress of all students.

The Comprehensive System of Student Support (CSSS) or Response to Intervention (RtI) provides interventions to students who require academic or behavioral support to maximize their education by integrating Response to Intervention (RtI) and Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support (PBIS), as well as other support initiatives.

The U.S. Department of Education recently released some excellent FREE and comprehensive resources for schools to address school climate and culture. It aligns exceptionally well with what we are working on in the district with PBIS implementation at all 3 tiers and directly addresses action planning for cultural responsiveness. The available resources are extensive and cover every topic imaginable. You will find resources specific for early childhood, elementary, middle and high schools. Visit the Department of Education site noted below. The Directory of Resources is also attached below.
