  • Work time to co-construct school-wide multi-tiered discipline model
  • Reflect and strengthen relational trust among staff & community members
  • Co-construct systems that support engaging in healthy problem solving as a community.
  • Plan August 15-19 Differentiated PD week


PBIS: Tier 1 Assessment

Hello SEED Teachers,

Monday & Tuesday School Visit

I'm in the midst of completing brief Tier 1 assessments across all classrooms at my PBIS sites. The process will likely take 1 to 2 days, and will give your school's PBIS team some great information on which tier 1 practices are "living" in your classrooms. I'm excited to get started! Please click on this link to view the assessment for your reference. Thanks!

Christina Gillen, PBIS Coach
