Using tablets equipped with reading, writing, and behavior documentation applications, W. Charles Akins High School Social Behavioral Skills (SSBS) students will improve their reading and writing achievement, behavioral choices, and social skills in academic settings. Mrs. Newcomb and her colleagues will use behavioral applications to document, collect, and interpret data that will be used to make Individual Educational Plan decisions. Staff will ultimately collaborate with parents to address truancy, poor study habits, social skills, and other chronic behavior problems endemic to the SSBS student population.
