Tools for a Successful School Year
The first few weeks of school represent a critical window during which we establish the routines and the overall learning culture that will define the entire year. By starting off on the right foot, we greatly increase our chances that this school year will be exhilarating rather than exhausting.
In this high-impact workshop, Ohio-based school transformation expert, Tyrone Olverson, and Millennium Community School’s Executive Director, Tijuana Russell, will show you how to get the most out of those crucial first weeks of school. Drawing on research and instructional tools from the award-winning Tools for a Successful School Year, this workshop directly supports—at the classroom level—the kind of proactive approach to behavior management that PBIS calls for.
