Grants and Contracts Details
The Behavior Web Home Page site allows parents and professionals' access to information and to effective practices concerning the full range of behavior problems and challenges displayed by children and youth in school and community settings. The information is consistent with the Kentucky Department of Education's (KDE) Standards and Indicators for School Improvement (SISI) with regard to improving a schools culture and climate and promotes evidence-based reading instruction and the teaching of expectations advocated in "No Child Left Behind." For the past several years, the Behavior Web site has received between one thousand to two thousand "hits" per week. Currently, a total of 662,583 persons have viewed the Web site. Persons consistently indicate satisfaction with the information gained relative to their goals in accessing the page. The Web site has been included in numerous state and national conferences presentations such as National CEC and CCBD, the Behavior Institute '07, 19th Annual Youth At-Risk Conference and in multiple Kentucky district trainings. In addition, information with regard to the Behavior Home Page has been published in newsletters (e.g., The Council for Exceptional Children's (CEC) and the Council for Children with Behavioral Disorders (CCBD), Kentucky CEC and CCBD), linked from over 1,000 Web sites including many federally funded Web sites (e.g., Positive Behavior Intervention and Support, Center for Effective Collaboration and Practice (CECP), Regional Intervention Program (RIP) and noted in the Federal document, "Safeguarding Our Children: An Action Guide." Last year, portions of the Web site were recommended in "Tools for Promoting Educational Success and Reducing Delinquency (i.e., Tools for Success)" produced by The Juvenile Justice/Special Education Shared Agenda.
