Tennessee Behavior Supports Project at Vanderbilt University

Thirteen Murfreesboro City Schools has been selected to receive special recognition from The Tennessee Behavior Supports Project at Vanderbilt University for their implementation of Response to Instruction and Interventions for Behavior, otherwise known as RTI2-B. 

All Murfreesboro City Schools have applied this to improve the climate, culture, and proactive disciplinary practices which directly impacts student engagement and school connectedness. In meeting this award criteria, schools 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.  

Selected schools have been a participant 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. 

We are excited to celebrate our schools for their effort and dedication to supporting the needs of all students.
