The Tennessee Behavior Supports Project (TBSP) at Vanderbilt University (funded by the Tennessee Department of Education) is proud to announce that several Robertson County District schools have been selected as either a: 2020-2021 School of Recognition, or Model of Demonstration School.

These schools have participated in training and technical assistance provided by TBSP and have undergone the process of implementing a positive and proactive behavioral systems framework for all students.

The RTI2-B framework consists of: identifying common behavioral expectations across campus, teaching, re-teaching, reinforcing, and regularly acknowledging students, faculty, and families for exhibiting these expectations.

These recognized schools have applied this framework to improve the climate, culture, and proactive disciplinary practices which directly impacts student engagement and school connectedness.

In meeting this award criteria, they have demonstrated use of school-wide behavioral data to inform teaching practices and levels of support provided to students based on need. Twice a year, they also reflected on overall fidelity to guide their implementation of the RTI2-B framework.

It is TBSP’s goal that no school in Tennessee should have to travel more than 45 minutes to see an exemplary school implementing RTI2-B. The RCS Model of Demonstration schools can now as a mentor to other schools and the Schools of Recognition are on their way to providing the same level of excellence and example.

These awards will be presented at the Partners In Education Conference held in Nashville by the Department of Education.
