Project Summary

Effective Behavioral & Instructional Support Systems Grant (EBISS) is supported by a state professional development grant  from the Oregon Department of Education. The goal of the EBISS grant is to increase student achievement (Pre K-12) by assisting district leadership teams to implement effective and sustainable school-wide systems in the adoption of the K-12 Oregon Literacy Framework, Positive Behavioral Interventions Support, and Response to Intervention.  There are approximately 29 EBISS districts and early childhood centers participating in the EBISS grant. Participants receive regular technical assistance visits from an EBISS state coordinator as well as access to ongoing professional development. EBISS professional development is offered through a variety of means including webinars, on-site trainings, and conferences. The EBISS state Coordination team collaborates with other state initiatives including the NW PBIS Network, OrRTI, and SISEP (State Implementation of Scaling-up Evidence Practices).
