What is “A Regional Center of Excellence”?
ReLife School is a program of Puget Sound Educational Service District designed to address the academic and behavioral needs of students (Grades 2 - 12) with significant social, emotional, and behavioral challenges. The program employs a strong focus on the individual academic growth of students. Through efforts to improve students’ executive functioning, attention to detail and social interactions. We engage students in appropriate study skills and assignment/project completion, resulting in movement toward increased successful classroom experiences. We seek to create a safe and structured environment for students to learn skills and strategies for coping with the stresses of daily life and to replace inappropriate behavior with socially adaptive behavior. We do this through a combination of in-class lessons, modeling, and reinforcement, individual, group, and family therapy and through individualized plans. Our goal is to transition each student from the ReLife program to the larger world, be it their neighborhood school, a job site, or post-secondary education, with the skills and knowledge needed to navigate that world successfully. We are A Regional Center of Excellence!
To that end, in these difficult times, ReLife’s new Principal, Dr. Reginald Reid with his Administrators and staff have worked tirelessly to ensure students’ educational needs are not compromised. Working closely with district partners, ReLife is strategically using a three-phase process (below) to ensure that our students continue to progress.
RECOVERY AND ACCELERATED SERVICES
We are currently in the EXPANDED SUPPORT phase. During this new and foreign way of operating, we continue to maintain our core values of safety, respect, and responsibility. We achieve this through explicit and focused instruction and through modeling of these values for our students. We are happy to share, that during these perilous times, our students continue to thrive and experience joy and laughter in a relaxed and positive school climate. These times have allowed us to continue to teach and re-teach expectations and reflection on choices and resetting of behaviors. We are A Regional Center of Excellence!
