TIER ONE BEHAVIOR SYSTEMS

LAYING THE “GROUND WORK” FOR SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL-BEHAVIORAL SUPPORTS

Schools without well-developed Tier 1 Behavior Systems often have challenging, disruptive environments that negatively impact the education of all students and leads to high teacher turnover. 

What if your school could overcome these challenges and provide a positive learning environment for all students? 

Ground Work, our Tier 1 Behavior Support Framework, provides a proven, step-by-step system that creates a positive school culture and ensures every student is on track to succeed.

Here’s what some of our partner campuses and districts have said about our work. 

Emergent Tree led us through intentional and deliberate process of gathering all the different voices in the same room and took us through a strategic conversation. What emerged was a comfort in recognizing that colleagues were ready to collaborate on next steps and establish cohesion in moving forward.

Emergent Tree helped us come together and elivate the conversation about Social Emotional Behavioral needs. As a result, we established a District Care Team and created visuals/frameworks so we are all on the same page. The validation that Emergent Tree gave us allowed us to self-correct.
