Becky Brockman, Executive Director Of Special Services, Snohomish, WA

The learning that we have done as a district with Continua Consulting Company has led us to question our long-held beliefs and assumptions around the “why” of student behavior and the often-ineffective ways in which we have responded in the past. If all behavior is communication, then what are our students trying to tell us? The power of the work that they are leading us in is learning strategic, researched-based practices in which adults respond in ways that will help all students, but especially students who have or are experiencing trauma. For school districts on the MTSS journey, Continua’s work will help your staff, who often feel helpless when student needs are great, create a positive learning environment in which students can thrive.
