BDN shares new UMaine microcredential in Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports
The Bangor Daily News reported that the University of Maine will soon begin offering a micro-credential for educators to become Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) coaches and trainers in schools and school districts throughout the state. PBIS is a nationally recognized framework providing a multi-tiered continuum of support to all students, promoting positive academic and socio-behavioral outcomes. “The schools we’ve worked with so far have seen incredible benefits that will last for years. Students are getting the support they need to thrive in the classroom, and teachers are able to focus on teaching and are better equipped to handle all types of behavioral issues,” said Courtney Angelosante, PBIS initiative coordinator and faculty member in special education at the College of Education and Human Development.
