EMPOWER-U Guide: It is based on a Three Tier System for District, Juvenile Faculties, & other Youth Organizations. It is designed to Evaluate, Motivate and Pursue excellence in students. To help them Overcome barriers, Work hard to Ensure they Reachtheir goals. EMPOWER-U ‘ three-tiered support model allows educators to identify the behavioral needs of all students, match the level of support to the severity of their behavior problems, and then assess the students’ response to instruction and intervention. It promotes a comprehensive and collaborative approach to developing all students’ social, emotional, academic and physical competencies, and to reducing barriers to learning due to behavioral/mental health issues. The integrated instruction, tools and intervention of this guide is delivered to students in varying intensities (multiple tiers) based on student need. The guide delivers a model that is “Needs driven”. Decision-making seeks to ensure that district resources reach the appropriate students at the appropriate levels in hopes to accelerate the performance of ALL students to achieve (emotionally, behaviorally and academically) and/or exceed proficiency. This guide has multiple components that are designed so that the program can be specialized for your district, organization or Juvenile facility. It can be based on a multi-tier system with ALC “schools-within-a-school“, it can be incorporated within the Rti system, their is a free standing component for an ALE School or a Juvenile Based ALE School and lastly, the covered program design can accommodate a School Based or Off site Mental Health Day Treatment Program.
