The School Climate Transformation Grant was released in 2014 as a competitive grant to support state educational agencies (SEAs) to develop, enhance, or expand systems of support for, and technical assistance to, local educational agencies and schools implementing an evidence-based, multi-tiered behavioral framework for improving behavioral outcomes and learning conditions for all students.

The Nevada Department of Education, in collaboration with PBS-NV, was awarded the five-year grant in October 2014, with the School Climate Transformation Project officially beginning on January 1, 2015.  Throughout the five years of the grant cycle, School-wide PBIS will be implemented in 93 schools in seven districts across the state of Nevada, while the Nevada PBIS Technical Assistance Center assists districts in building their own capacity to continue the project once the grant cycle ends.  The seven districts, as selected by the Nevada Department of Education, are Douglas, Humboldt, Pershing, Lander, Elko, Clark, and Washoe.

Please check out this video of support from Dr. Ken Coll, the Dean of the College of Education at the University of Nevada, Reno in which he describes the Project.
