VC SELPA Behavior Leaders

There are three designated "Behavior Leaders" in the VC SELPA.  They are SELPA delegates to the Positive Environments Network of Trainers (PENT). The Positive Environments Network of Trainers is a California Positive Behavior Initiative designed to provide information and resources for educators striving to achieve high educational outcomes through the use of proactive positive strategies. The SELPA Behavior Leaders can be consulted for ideas and support by e-mail or visit the PENT website at www.pent.ca.gov for information and support from throughout the state.
