Comprehensive Three-Teired Model of Prevention (CI3T)
As the school year begins, we are excited to introduce new and returning families of Farley to our Comprehensive, Integrated, Three-tiered (CI3T) model of prevention! It is our belief that our commitment to students and our community will show in our CI3T plan. In order to maximize the plan’s effectiveness, we are providing parents and the greater community with information regarding our CI3T plan. We hope that you will hear more details about this plan from our students! Please do not hesitate to contact Farley faculty and staff if you have any questions and/or comments!
What is a CI3T plan?
A comprehensive, integrated, three-tiered model of prevention has, as its base, a school-wide primary prevention component. Each and every student participates just by virtue of attending our school. The goal of this school-wide plan is to equip students with meaningful academic, behavior, and social skill sets that will support successful school and life outcomes. This plan is also designed to create positive change within the school environment.
If the primary plan is not sufficient to meet some student’s needs, additional levels of support are planned. For example, some students may benefit from small focus groups (secondary support) whereas others may benefit most from individualized supports (tertiary support). Each of these levels of support, school-wide, secondary, and tertiary, are part of our CI3T plan. We aim to foster a positive learning environment for all students and support every student to the extent for academic, behavioral, and social success.
As part of the CI3T plan, students earn tickets by following the school-wide expectations: being safe, respectful, and responsible. Behavior-specific praise is given when students earn a Farley ticket. Students then have multiple opportunities throughout the week, both in their classrooms and throughout the school, to be recognized and rewarded for meeting school-wide expectations.
Each week, Farley students participate in an all school assembly to recognize safe, respectful, and responsible behavior throughout the school. If a child's ticket is drawn, they have the opportunity to select a prize off of the prize cart. The goal is for all students to be recognized at least once during the school year.
If you wish to donate items to the prize cart, we will gladly accept items such as toys (new or like new condition), school supplies, individually packaged candy or chips, or other items that students would be interested in earning. If you would like to donate items, please drop them off at the front office.
