The Indiana Pesticide Review Board has regulations that impact how school corporations may use pesticides on school grounds. MSD Warren Township follows these guidelines and we are inviting parents and guardians to join our Pesticide Notification Registry. By signing up for this registry, you will be notified, via email, at least 48 hours prior to a pesticide application at your child’s school, subject to certain exceptions. You will be invited to sign up for this notification each school year. Board Policy 8432-Pest Control
All MSD of Warren Township schools will begin implementing Culturally Responsive Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (CR-PBIS) for the 2014-2015 school year. CR-PBIS is a research-based framework of proactive management of behavioral concerns that is grounded in a profound emphasis on what we want students “to do”. This model is used district wide to provide a consistent, positive approach to discipline that includes explicit teaching and acknowledgement of behavior expectations, cultural responsiveness, and problem solving to meet individual student needs.
Each school has a CR-PBIS team. These teams have received extensive training on the components of CR-PBIS and have developed a comprehensive plan for implementation at the building level aligned to MSD of Warren Township’s district goals of C.O.R.E. (Civility, Order, Respect, and Excellence). Each building team uses data to help determine areas of strength and additional supports needed, which aids faculty members in improving academic and behavioral outcomes for all students.
All schools have outlined the specific behaviors that are expected in the school environment. These expectations translate into observable and measurable behaviors that are explicitly taught and acknowledged when students demonstrate them in specific settings throughout the school. This promotes an atmosphere of C.O.R.E. and shifts the focus from our reactions to misbehavior to strategies that we can implement to reduce the incidence of behavioral errors.
