Outreach Programs Bring a Community Together

Madison Elementary School, Olympia, Wash.
 

Washington State ASCD has awarded Madison Elementary School the Safe School Award for 2012. As Title I School in Olympia, Washington, Madison has many programs in place to ensure the success and safety of its at-risk populations. The school is considered a “safe harbor,” thanks in large part to the implementation of Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS), which uses decision-making techniques to address behavior concerns. Madison also maintains a multitude of outreach programs, strengthening bonds with parents and the community through family learning nights, a community garden, and partnerships with other schools and nonprofit organizations.
