Hubbuch, Chris; Stucker, Keelie
Online Submission
Schools implementing positive behavioral interventions and supports work to establish and maintain fidelity of school-wide systems and practices. Depending on the mobility rate of the student population, initial efforts may not be enough to adequately support and personalize the induction experience for highly mobile students. This monograph will share a framework for a student induction model specifically designed to meet the needs of highly mobile students. The Transfer Student Induction Model, or TSIM was developed and implemented on the middle school level in Excelsior Springs, Missouri in 2010. TSIM was designed to support the specific social, emotional, and academic needs of highly mobile students. This model was carefully designed as a Tier 1 support with practical steps that protect existing school climate. Several structures and steps are suggested to implement this model with fidelity. This model was designed to be implemented using existing school personnel. TSIM is informed by educational research, tested by practitioners in the field, and easily adapts to different grade levels and community demographics.
