Improved Performance Indicators on District Annual Performance Reports
The program models increase performance on the school districts’ Annual Yearly Progress and Special Education Annual Performance Report by reducing the number of students who are suspended, expelled, and/or placed in separate special education facilities.
School districts also improve on state and national performance outcomes. Through utilization of the Crisis Intervention Behavior Stabilization (CIBS) program, school districts will provide suspended students with alternative programming and with options to stabilize the behavior that is inciting the expulsion. The CIBS program allows the student to stay in school while on suspension, reducing the number of general and special education students suspended. Students complete school work, retaining valuable seat time and making it less likely that the student will fall behind.
The Menta program offers a best-practice program which includes:
Seamless continuum of placements and services located in the students’ local community,
Supports for students in crisis
Coaches for students and staff during reintegration
