Both Sides of the Pyramid - Meeting the Needs of - Every Kid - Every School - Every Day
Presenters address the academic and behavioral sides of the Napa Valley Unified Response to Intervention Pyramid. Our Positive Behavioral Intervention Support and Read 180/System 44 programs will be highlighted. These programs have achieved transformational results and become the most successful district-wide implementations in memory. Results include reduced suspensions/expulsions with more than a $250,000 savings. Academic results were also impressive, with sharply decreased numbers of students needing interventions or referred to Special Education. Lessons learned about successful district-wide program implementation are specific yet flexible enough to provide practical guidance to adapt to many implementation efforts. Common threads include: the absolute need for district level vision and leadership, program champions, careful program selection, layered professional development, coaching, data collection, monitoring, and analysis, communication, and celebration.
