On Tuesday, February 12th, Kreole Primary Elementary will be named a Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support (PBIS) model school site by REACH MS.
REACH MS is an acronym for Realizing Excellence for ALL Children in Mississippi and is a Mississippi’s State Personnel Development Grant, which focuses primarily on supporting school-wide and district-wide implementation of Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support (PBIS) at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.
Recently, several new initiates were added: PBIS Early Childhood, Universal Design for Learning and Significant Cognitive Disabilities. Awarded to The Mississippi Department of Education in 2005, the grant is operated by the University of Southern Mississippi’s Department of Curriculum, Instruction and Special Education. Cecilia Ballard, Moss Point School District’s Behavior Specialist, stated “This was not an easy feat, and Kreole had to be “ALL IN” and “EMBRACE the PROCESS” in order to reach this level”.
The banner presentation will take place on Tuesday, February 12 at 3:00 pm at Kreole Primary Elementary, 6312 Martin Luther King Blvd. Moss Point, MS.
