She can assist with classroom management strategies (CHAMPS/MAC), student behavioral support (PBIS), differentiating curriculum for special education students, and much more. Please reach out to her to come assist you in your classroom.


RtI Behavior steps

When you have a student who needs more behavioral supports please ensure you have incorporated the following steps:


  1. Level 1-3 Behavior procedures have been implemented
  2. Planned Conversations have been documented and revisited
  3. Parent Conference
  4. Collaborated with Allison Lehrmann for strategy suggestions (She is here all day on Tuesday)
Then you would contact Mrs. Sciba for a Tier 2 behavior meeting.
