Office for a Safe and Respectful Learning Environment


Mission Statement

Collaborate to ensure that all, regardless of any differing characteristic, work and learn in a safe and respectful learning environment.

Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS)

A multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) is a proactive and preventative framework that integrates data and instruction to maximize student achievement and support students' social, emotional, and behavioral needs from a strengths-based perspective.

The Nevada Department of Education works closely with the Nevada Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Technical Assistance Center housed in the University of Nevada to assist districts in deeply implementing this framework to support initiatives for school safety, restorative justice, mental health, trauma, climate, and social-emotional learning.
