Carbondale ESD #95 pushes Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports

Posted: Updated:

CARBONDALE, Ill.—Carbondale ESD #95 is introducing more Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports assistance into classrooms.

The initiative works to provide aid for behavioral health management for students, parents and positive reinforcement in classrooms that rewards students for good behaviors. Pupil Services Director Zeppelyn Brewer said the district is able to use more money for their programs that was originally allocated to academics.

"But now the state as well as the federal government is looking at ways to help support school districts in the area of social, emotional, behavioral supports," said Brewer.

Learn more about resources available to students and parents in the Carbondale Elementary School District Monday, Oct. 22 at the Eurma Hayes Center in Carbondale on 441 E. Willow St. The Jackson County Health Department and the Boys and Girls Club of Carbondale will also be available for other questions and concerns.

Discussions, along with light refreshments and a laptop raffle, will begin at 5 p.m.
