School Culture Development and Improvement Program

The federal government, via IDEA, has strongly recommended Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) as a framework to prevent disruptive behavior and support students’ development of self-monitoring, correction, and effective decision-making.  REACH© has developed a specific program to assist school leaders with addressing school culture and student behavior.  This program aligns to the five principles highlighted in effective PBIS frameworks:  universal screening (REACH climate survey), continuous progress monitoring (classroom checkpoint cards, homework planner, and the REACH Character Board, etc.), data-based decision-making (student workbook and Turquoise Squad book series), implementation fidelity (REACH facilitator), and evidence-based interventions (REACH referral ladder).  Through an outlined approach for change, a REACH© facilitator will take a school community through the steps of self-assessment to action planning aligned to the results of the assessment, and implementation of the action plan.  The impact of an explicit plan and approach to address a school's culture can lead to increased effectiveness of staff performance, family engagement and student achievement.  The Reimagine Excellence and Achievement in CHildren (REACH) Character Program™ is a Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS) that incorporates research-based approaches to addressing students’ behavior.  This program is grounded in a book series that follows a group of urban children through issues they encounter in schools and their neighborhood.  To create this system of support, our REACH Character Program™ includes:
