About Proactive Measures

Participants have increased their skills in evidence-based practices including trauma-informed care, multi-tiered systems of support, behavior intervention, comprehensive literacy instruction and structured teaching.

This series began as a pilot program in St. Francis Public Schools in the summer of 2017. Educator participants since 2017 have shared their feedback after implementing the practices they learned in their workshops. 

After attending the Proactive Measures workshops:

  • Training increased teacher confidence in their ability to implement research-based strategies.

  • Participants gained skills in creating and implementing strategies to increase student independence.

  • Academic excellence improved, and students became more independent in their pursuit of academic goals.

  • Teachers and paraprofessionals were communicating more consistently about student needs.

  • Behavioral outcomes improved as educators had more positive interactions with students.

  • Training provided tools to create integrated and layered systems to increase student learning and success.
