Proactive Measures
is a professional development series led by Northeast Metro 916 Intermediate School District, designed as specialized training that provides teachers and school staff with evidence-based strategies that will empower them to support student success in their least restrictive setting. 

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

After attending the Proactive Measures workshops:

  • Training will increase teacher confidence in their ability to implement research-based strategies.
  • Participants gain skills in creating and implementing strategies to increase student independence.
  • Academic excellence improves, and students become more independent in pursuing academic goals.
  • Teachers and paraprofessionals will communicate more consistently about student needs.
  • Behavioral outcomes improve as educators have more positive interactions with students.
  • Training will provide tools to create integrated and layered systems to increase student learning and success.

If you have any questions about these workshops or whether you can be paid to attend, please feel free to reach out to Theresa Wallace at [email protected].
