02/25/20, 630pm, Special Education Resource Fair

The Special Education Department is hosting a Resource Fair for all families of students receiving special education services. We invite you to attend and learn face-to-face from the people who help coordinate services to support your student. Special Education directors and staff, representatives from other Seattle Public Schools departments, and community groups will be onsite during this open-house style event, so bring your questions! This is a great opportunity to learn, gather resources, and ask general questions regarding your student’s services, district programs, or to better understand the work of different organizations in the community. Childcare will be provided at both events. Please feel free to attend whichever event is most convenient for your schedule.

02/25/20, 8am, PBIS Assembly

What is PBIS?  Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based three-tiered framework for improving and integrating all of the data, systems, and practices affecting student outcomes every day. It is a way to support everyone – especially students with disabilities – to create the kinds of schools where all students are successful.

PBIS isn’t a curriculum you purchase or something you learn during a one-day professional development training. It is a commitment to addressing student behavior through systems change. When it’s implemented well, students achieve improved social and academic outcomes, schools experience reduced exclusionary discipline practices, and school personnel feel more effective.  Read more here.
