PBIS: Tier 1 Assessment

Hello SEED Teachers,


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

Revisiting our Rules

As the end of the year is approaching, now more than ever it is critical that we reinforce our rituals and routines.


Restroom passes - students must have pass at all time

TK-1: can be with a buddy

2-5: 1 pass = 1 student (no exceptions)


Line up/Pick up

Please ensure that you pick up your students on time from the line.


Yard Supervision

Please adhere to the yard supervision schedule, we need you to help us maintain a safe play environment.


Healthy Snacks

Only healthy snacks are allowed at school; when students bring junk food, we are happy to replace their junk food with fruit or a healthier snack.

2nd & 5th Grade: Dual Language Report Card

The DL report card will be discussed during ILT to better identify a process and space for the 2nd & 5th grade teachers to engage in this work. Teacher paid extra time can/will be considered for this work or alternative recommendations will be generated by ILT & grade level leads.


The screencast to guide an approximately one-hour session on the DL Report cards is ready for grades 2nd to 5th for the Trimester 3 pilot. See it at the link below:
