ATTENDANCE

Attendance

Key Resources

 
 
A prevention and intervention guide for schools and districts
 
 
Cultivating a school-wide culture of attendance involves creating a climate that promotes positive, trusting relationships between students, families and staff; ensures engaging learning opportunities, classrooms and schools; and identifies and removes barriers to attendance and school success.
 
The CDS team supports LEA's to ensure that the classrom/school/district, as a whole, is systematically cultivating a culture of engagement and attendance that addresses the needs of all individual students and staff.
 
We strive to provide understanding and integration of engagement with attendance, mental wellness and additional factors that disrupt positive school experiences.

Equity

Key Resources

 
 
Educational equity ensures that all students, regardless of their identities, circumstances or location, have equal access to resources, a positive learning experience and opportunities to succeed in the classroom and beyond.

The Coordinated District Support (CDS) Team is determined and committed to eliminate the inequities that persists within our school systems and among student groups who have been historically marginalized such as students of color, students who are on Individualized Education Plans, English Learners, migrant children, children experiencing homelessness, and children in the foster care system.

PBIS

Four interactive elements which serve as the core of the implementation process

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports

Key Resources

 
 
 
 
 
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence based, multi-tiered framework for improving and integrating all of the practices, data, and systems that impact student outcomes every day. It's a way to support everyone in creating schools where all students are successful and school environments are safe, predictable, positive, consistent and equitable.
 
The Coordinated District Support team is committed to supporting schools and districts with developing a multi-tiered system of support that addresses academic and social-emotional behavior skill development. When PBIS is implemented well, students achieve improved social and academic outcomes, schools experience a reduction in the use of exclusionary discipline practices, and school personnel feel more effective.

Social and emotional learning (SEL)  is the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships and make responsible decisions. 

Schoolwide SEL is a systemic approach to infusing social and emotional learning into every part of students’ educational experience.
