CPI’s Newest Program Fosters a Positive Culture Within All Classrooms
Crisis Prevention Institute: Classroom Culture Training
We’re proud to offer this new market-critical training program aimed at providing an immersive, proactive, and consistent approach to sustain positive classroom environments. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits and features this program offers your school or district.
A New Perspective on the Positive Behavioural Interventions and Supports Framework
Schools and districts throughout the world apply a tiered framework, most frequently the Positive Behavioural Interventions and Supports (PBIS) pyramid, to prevent problematic behaviour. While each tier takes into account the level of social, emotional, and behavioural needs a student requires, they don’t necessarily account for how adult behaviour influences and impacts the culture of a classroom.
CPI fills that gap with Classroom Culture Training, by providing techniques and principles that focus on the environment itself. This new perspective on the PBIS framework is more critical than ever, as student anxiety is at an all-time high. That anxiety can quickly surface into behavioural problems, so proactively approaching classroom culture is crucial to preventing crisis moments.
To make this program consistently effective, we’ve built the training to fit seamlessly into any framework currently in use within your school or district. Classroom Culture stands on five core principles: calm and consistent, sustainable routines, first attention to best conduct, scripted interventions, and restorative approaches. Each provides practical techniques that help prevent or mitigate the need for de-escalation interventions.
Benefits for Teachers, Schools and Districts
- Applies a common framework that provides your teachers and staff with sustainable and practical standards for implementing.
- Virtual delivery removes the need for in-person instruction, eliminates travel expenses, and cuts down on time out of the classroom.
- Classroom Culture Training utilizes your existing behaviour management initiatives, making concepts easy for teachers to adopt, implement, and repeat.
- Classroom Culture Training offers flexible delivery over the course of a school year, so you can choose the timeline that works best for you: in one-session, in semi-annual sessions, or in more modular sessions.
If you are interested in fostering a positive culture within your school or district, Classroom Culture Training from CPI is the ideal program to build your foundation upon. With more than 40 years in evidence-based de-escalation and crisis prevention training, CPI programs are the gold standard for educational institutions.
