Six Strands of Training

The Southeast Conference on School Climate is inviting presentation proposals for the following conference strands:

Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports
The Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports strand is designed to provide participants with evidence-based practices from the three-tiered framework. This strand includes presentations that are designed for:

  • Schools in the initial stages of implementing school-wide PBIS focusing on developing and implementing a school-wide PBIS plan.
  • Schools that are focusing on sustaining effective PBIS practices
  • Schools seeking individualized interventions for difficult populations and students who need more intense interventions, including students with high-functioning autism or Asperger’s syndrome, students with emotional and behavioral disorders, and students considered at-risk.
  • Mental Health
    The Mental Health strand is designed for schools seeking to infuse behavioral/mental health into a tiered PBIS system. The focus of this strand will be to develop the Interconnected Systems Framework (ISF) in schools. Participants will understand how to identify students with behavioral health needs, develop evidence-based practices within an ISF, and learn to connect with the expertise of clinicians to improve student outcomes.

    School Safety
    The School Safety strand is designed to help schools understand school safety planning categorized by prevention/mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery. The focus of this strand will be to provide participants with sustainable school safety strategies that create safe and supportive environments for all students, data integration strategies to guide in the program planning of universal interventions that impact school safety, and the use of an effective stakeholders network that includes students, staff, parents and community members.

    Social-Emotional Learning
    The Social-Emotional Learning strand is designed to provide participants with evidence-based practices for teaching students self-awareness, self-control, and interpersonal skills that are critical to success in school. This strand will focus on providing participants with strategies related to self-management, self-awareness, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making.

    Restorative Practices
    The Restorative Practices strand is designed to provide participants with practices that promote respect, dignity, and mutual concern. This strand will focus on how to embed the 5 Rs of restorative practice (Relationship, Respect, Responsibility, Repair, and Reintegration) into daily routines.

    Mindfulness and Wellbeing
    The Mindfulness and Wellbeing strand is designed to help participants infuse mindfulness and wellbeing principles, theories and practices into daily curriculum. The focus of this strand will be to reduce stress and anxiety in the educational environment, increase attention and focus, and improve self-care for both students and teachers.
