PBSES SDQ Survey / Altered Bell Schedule – March 15
Positive Behavior and Social Emotional Support (PBSES) is a framework that employs evidence based practices and multiple tiers of support to serve students through a continuum of care. Through this framework, we work to strengthen school climate, classroom
practices, and the social emotional skills of students. As part of our PBSES work, students at Liberty will be asked to complete the second short, 25-item “Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire” on Friday, March 15. The survey is kid-friendly and used
to gain insight about individual student emotional and behavioral functioning. It identifies a child’s personal strengths as well as challenges. Once we have the results of the survey, we will be contacting the parents of students whose scores indicate high-internalized
stress for the first time in the 18-19 school year.
Additionally, student scores may be used to proactively identify supports for students.
If you have questions about the survey, please feel free to contact me or if you do not want your student to participate, please let me know in writing (email@example.com) by 3/8/2019. *Note,
if you opted your child out of the fall survey, you do not need to opt them out again for this second survey.
Thank you for your continued support as we work to support the emotional health of our students.
