History of School Interventions
I got creative and decided that I would produce a single page document that contained everything I know about the benefits of Student Interventions. I have been involved with Idaho schools who have used these processes for the last 20 years.
I used Adobe Acrobat and linked separate files to the original document – where appropriate. I didn’t realize that WordPress themes would dislike my creativity. As you mosey down the document, you will see the push pins. Highlight each push pin and a description of the “attached document” will appear.
If you download the PDF, a double click on the push pins will bring up a supporting document for each topic commented. To enlarge the PDF image or download to your device – see the tool bar instructions below.
Included in the supporting documents, is a State Education report that shows students violations went down significantly in those schools that were conscientious about implementing attention to: BAAA = Behaviors, Attendance, Attitude and Achievements. There are ethical, humanitarian and financial reasons to perform proper student interventions.
Short term political fads or bandwagons and grant funds – shift local priorities to other issues – that never seem to last.
