WVDE Office of Special Education to Present at International Conference

March 25, 2003

CHARLESTON, W.Va. - The first International Conference on Positive Behavior Supports will feature two presentations from the West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE). Two teams from the Office of Special Education (OSE) will deliver presentations on positive behavior initiative and the state’s Responsible Student initiative March 26-29 in Orlando, Fla.  

“It is an honor to be part of such a significant event,” said Dee Braley, Executive Director of OSE. “The teams representing the Department will allow other states to see how West Virginia has progressed with regards to positive behavior and student responsibility.”  

The selected presentations are a result of the WVDE’s Responsible Student Through School-Wide Positive Behavior Support initiative. The first team will describe the initiative and its impact in West Virginia. The second team will focus on the encouraging data trends in both behavior and achievement at the secondary level when the department’s Responsible Students’ initiative is implemented with the Positive Behavior Supports initiative.  

Both presentation proposals were evaluated by independent reviewers and selected from a large number of national and international submissions.
