I am on my way back from the ISTE conference (International Society for Technology in Education) and was checking email when I came across an article about some Michigan schools ready to adopt PBS - Positive Behavior Support (System). I've know about this philosophy for a long time thanks to the folks at the Northeast Foundation for Children - The Responsive Classroom people. Thought it was interesting that it made ASCD's Smartbrief today as I don't always hear a lot about schools trying to support positive behavior in a structured, systematic way. It's so necessary and can set our students up for even greater success. It makes a difference, I've seen it personally. So here's the link to the article and check out the NEFC too.
