Training � Current Training Options A study was conducted of current training options available through the 20 ESCs and other entities throughout the state to identify barriers and concerns related to access to these trainings. � Core Trainings Region XIII delivered a continuum of scientifically based training to meet the variety of needs state wide through the Fall of 2008. � Needs Assessment for Determining Training Needs � Began to gather data and resources to develop a Training Needs document for administrators/ Admission, Review, and Dismissal (ARD) committees to use to determine if training is required on any strategies described in a student’s IEP. Behavior and Discipline Management Texas Behavior Support Initiative (TBSI) training modules assist campus teams in developing and implementing a wide range of behavior strategies and prevention-based interventions. These skills have helped educators establish systems of support at school-wide, classroom and individual student levels. The Texas Collaborative for Emotional Development in Schools (TxCEDS), a project of the TBSI, is responsible for the development of a statewide-integrated mental health model for school-age students. Additional information regarding the Texas Behavior Support Initiative is available at http://www.txbsi.org. TBSI is designed to build capacity in Texas schools for the provision of Positive Behavior Support (PBS) to all students. The goal of PBS is to enhance the capacity of schools to educate all students, especially students with challenging behaviors, by adopting a sustained, positive, preventative, and effective instructional approach to school wide discipline and behavior management. This approach focuses on teaching and encouraging positive school wide behavioral expectations and increasing school capacity to support sustained use of empirically validated practices. The following continuous efforts and improvement activities were completed in 2007-08: Conference/Meeting Participation � Facilitated the TBSI Statewide Conference held in San Antonio, Texas on June 15-17, 2008.
