INACTIVE-Scientific Research-Based Interventions (SRBI) and School Climate: Preventing and Addressing Barriers to Learning

While academic rigor continues to increase, results have been mixed, including test scores that have not risen to the extent expected. Research suggests that this may be a result of an inordinate focus on rigor to the exclusion of relevance and relationships, two essential aspects of teaching that serve to engender active student engagement and achievement. As part of your School Climate Plan, EASTCONN can help you identify and implement strategies and interventions to address your students' social, emotional and behavioral challenges in ways that allow you to improve student learning and that align with a Scientific Research-Based Interventions/Response to Interventions (SRBI/RtI) approach.


Benefits: This initiative aligns with the Connecticut State Department of Education mandate for implementation of Scientific Research-Based Interventions (SRBI). It also prevents many non-academic barriers to learning and teaching. With EASTCONN's help, use your existing resources more effectively and efficiently and reduce inappropriate referrals to special education.
