Program Success & Milestones
Less Behavior Referrals
A reduction in behavior referrals and the increased access to sensory tools will keep students in class and engaged. Less referrals will mean less time out of class for students, more cohesive and uninterrupted instructional time, and less administrative time spent dealing with discipline. More issues can be dealt with at the Tier I or Tier II intervention level, as opposed to behavior escalating to an inappropriate level.
Improved Interpersonal Relationships Between Students & Staff
TTUSD prides itself in creating meaningful, personal connections with students. The goal of TTUSD and NTHS is for student to feel that they have at least one, if not multiple, caring adults in their lives at school. By providing interventions that increase student time in class, they will also increase student-teacher interaction time which can improve and strengthen current relationships, as well as develop new relationships among students and staff.
Increased Self-Awareness in Students
Students can have an indirect instructional method to help them regulate their emotions and learn how to handle stress, anger, sadness and other emotions that may otherwise get in the way of their ability to learn. Increased self-awareness can also cut down on referrals for negative behavior, altercations between students, and a safer school environment. Students who develop self-awareness will also help create a school culture of tolerance, acceptance and community, which will produce positive outcomes for all students and staff.
