"What I Need"
Our WIN program provides services to children enrolled in our member school districts and surrounding communities. Students who enroll in this program often have significant social-emotional and behavioral needs which require a higher level of individualized support than what their home school district can provide to receive an equitable education experience.
The program's goal is to foster learning, cultivate skills, promote independence, and encourage students to become active, productive members of society. This program focuses on teaching appropriate academic, social, and behavioral skills with the end goal to transition students back into their mainstream school district.

Student Support Systems
Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports (PBIS)
PBIS is a school-wide framework for implementing proactive behavior intervention. This system supports students' needs while improving behavior, social-emotional awareness, academic success, school climate, and safety through an evidence-based three-tiered system. PBIS focuses solely on positively reinforcing desirable behavior, rather than punishing undesirable behavior. With this framework, we teach "STAR" qualities to all students -- Safety, Trust, Accountability, and Respect.
Student Behavior Profile (SBP)
The Student Behavior Profile is a data-based system used to gather measurable data about students’ behaviors, what influences happened immediately before, and the direct response or action that resulted after. This data is analyzed to make informed decisions about why a behavior might be occurring and which behavior intervention methods are the most successful for each student to promote the desired positive behavior. This data can be shared with the student’s IEP team to measure if they are demonstrating the appropriate academic, social, and behavioral skills needed to transition back into their home school district.
