The GTMS school self-assessment report is attached below. While completing the Self-Assessment, we learned that our school district/school has demonstrated strengths in our HIB programs and curriculum, our HIB incident reporting procedures as well as our HIB investigation process. The Self-Assessment helped our school district/school to identify that our staff continues to look forward to new and improved training on the HIB process each year.
