Schoharie Central School Partners with Schoharie County ARC-
Learning Positive Approaches to Challenging Behaviors
The Schoharie Central School District Special Eduction Department took part in 'Creating Opportunities for Positive Relations' training at the Schoharie County ARC campus. Schoharie County ARC adopted this training as part of their regular New Hire Orientation several years ago. It is the basic foundation of philosophical views of supporting and educating people served by the organization.
Commonly referred to as COPR, 'Creativing Opportunities for Positive Relations' training is provided by Schoharie County ARC Executive Director, Tony Alvarez, and ARC Administrators Terry Tetlak, Lauren Milavec and Linda Isles and focuses on positive means of dealing with challenging behaviors and includes an in-depth discussion on the ARC's approach to successfully educating people with developmental disabilities. A strong emphasis is placed on breaking down tasks and using positive reinforcement as the key to effective communication and educational success.
Aligning the teaching philosophies of both the ARC and Schoharie Central School enables the entities to provide continuity in educational supports. Currently, Schoharie County ARC provides transitional educational services (Student Transitional Education Program commonly referred to as S.T.E.P.) to Schoharie Central School students served by the Special Education Department.
