Educational Resource Services to Help Struggling Tennessee Schools

Educational Resource Services has signed an agreement with numerous school districts in the State of Tennessee to provide specific academic and behavioral professional development training to struggling schools.

Teaching today has never been more difficult. Failing to understand and respond appropriately to disruptive student behavior waste valuable instruction time; resulting in declining academic skills, poor test performance and wastes valuable education dollars. Research suggests that mismanaged disruptive classroom behavior is directly linked to academic failure, poor results on state assessment tests, school dropout, referrals to special education and teacher burnout.

Educational Resource Services works directly with state and local school agencies to provide professional development services for educators in a variety of areas: 1) Preventing school bullying, 2) Classroom behavior management (PBIS), 3) Using differential instruction-Response to Intervention (RTI) strategies for struggling learners, 4) Teaching students with autism spectrum disorder, and 5) Implementing school drop-out prevention. All training is research based, peer-reviewed and meets best practices standards legislation related to IDEA and NCLB. Title I and Title II funding has been approved for expenses related to this training.

Educational Resource Services has signed an agreement to provide professional development training for school district personnel throughout the State of Tennessee. The training is scheduled from 8:30am to 3:30pm and will be conducted on March 3rd in Memphis at the Marriott Memphis, on March 22nd in Nashville at the Scarritt Bennett Conference Center, and on March 23 in Knoxville at the Crowne Plaza Knoxville.

This training will focus on using specific academic and behavioral strategies for responding to disruptive classroom behavior. The content of this training is based on Dr. Fred Johnson's nationally acclaimed book; "Proactive Discipline for Reactive Students" which utilities concepts of PBIS. Many schools are using this book as part of their book study for professional development.

With classroom behavior problems becoming more difficult each year this will be one of the most important seminars offered during the academic year! For additional details educator may contact Educational Resource Services at 1-800-579-1085; or visit their web site at
