In addition to all of our great PBIS projects, we have had the opportunity to start, work on, and collaborate with other projects.
- SAMHSA’s Project AWARE Grant was made available in conjunction with the School Climate Transformation Grant. Project AWARE is a 5 year, $10 million grant that is assisting Humboldt, Pershing, and Lander counties with the training of school and community personnel to detect and respond to mental illness in children and youth in schools and communities.
- Because the two grants were awarded together, and both grants cover the Frontier Coalition (Humboldt, Pershing, Lander), the PBIS TA Center is working closely with the Project AWARE staff to ensure that our projects align in order to provide the best possible services to the Frontier Coalition.
- SAMHSA‘s SS/HS is a collaborative effort and comprehensive model to promote mental health among students, and create safe and secure schools. SS/HS is a five year multimillion dollar grant
- The five elements of SS/HS are
- Element One—Safe School Environments and Violence Prevention Activities;
- Element Two—Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drug Prevention Activities;
- Element Three—Student Behavioral, Social, and Emotional Supports;
- Element Four—Mental Health Services; and
- Element Five—Early Childhood Social and Emotional Learning Programs.
- Four members of the PBIS TA Center team sit on the SS/HS State Management Team
- The Integration Team was developed to bring the three main Nevada DOE grants together (SAMHSA Project AWARE, School Climate Transformation Project, Safe Schools/Healthy Students) to identify where the projects overlap, how we can assist each other with data collection, expertise, and resources, and how we can most efficiently use our resources to help schools throughout the state.
- CBANS is the result of a grant written by Shannon Taylor, Scott Harrington, Larry Williams, Steve Rock and our Project Director Ashley Greenwald.
- The main goal of CBANS is recruit, admit, support, retain, and graduate at least 21 scholars (who are current Nevada special education teachers) with a Masters degree in Education and an emphasis in Behavioral Interventions. This is intented to address the need for more educators with training and experience in behavioral assessment and intervention.

- The Technical Assistance Center on Social Emotional Intervention for Young Children (TACSEI) takes the research that shows which practices improve the social-emotional outcomes for young children with, or at risk for, delays or disabilities and creates FREE products and resources to help decision-makers, caregivers, and service providers apply these best practices in the work they do every day. Most of these free products are available on their website for you to immediately view, download and use.
- TACSEI is a five-year grant made possible by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs
