“Thank you, very much, for this opportunity. I know that our practices around intervention and behavior have much improved. We have integrated what we learned during our 2.5 years into our regular practice and it is making a difference in student learning. For areas that we have not yet demonstrated as much growth, we know have a way to close gaps. I am appreciative and grateful for this experience.”

Alice Jones, Principal, Woodbury Middle School, RSD #14

“CT SPDG provided excellent training in understanding and implementing PBIS. I see this as the greatest strength of the grant for us. The second most effective aspect of the grant has been the use of the ECI forms to monitor student progress. This has provided a vehicle to focus our interventions and move students forward as evidenced by our data. In addition, the insights into literacy, standards-based IEPs, effectiveness of IEPs over time, and a frank look at the way in which we interact with families and our community all helped us to reflect on our work and day to day actions.”

Lynn Fichtel, Principal, Consolidated School, New Fairfield

“The training and activities puts all of our goals into focus both for a safe school climate and for a rigorous academic offering. It provides the structure and focus on providing an appropriate program for all students and reaches the needs of the whole child, academically, behaviorally, socially, and physically.”
