No Mountain View Elementary? That’s the elementary school I went to, and the kids there were absolute monsters. Glad it appears it wasn’t just me.

Behavioral intervention helps staff help students who have behavior issues (i.e. freaking out, kids with special needs having meltdowns, etc). The program MDUSD uses is well regarded in helping students settled down and be safe if problems occur. The methodology also helps keep staff and others safe.

NOTE: Clayton Valley is absent from this list for two reasons: they aren’t in MDUSD (they’re just squatters on the property) and they don’t follow these methods.
