MTSS School Climate Resources
The MTSS Department uses the CR-PBIS Framework (Culturally Responsive Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) to support the development of classroom and school cultures where all students feel they belong in their school community. The CR-PBIS is a multi-tiered, proactive, and instructional approach to discipline that integrates restorative practices through a racial lens. MTSS TOSAs work with School Climate Teams to develop a more positive school climate that includes partnering with students, families, and communities.
PPS is committed to establishing a positive school climate in all schools across the district. When PBIS is fully implemented, this approach can reduce suspensions, decrease disproportionate discipline rates, and support better educational outcomes for all students.
