Bloomington Transition Center earns state recognition

Published on Jun 14, 2023

Bloomington Transition Center (BTC) was recognized by the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) for successfully implementing Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). 

PBIS is a framework for meeting the social, emotional and behavioral needs of students, promoting positive behavior, and improving student outcomes. BTC is among 87 schools recognized in Minnesota.

BTC is a Bloomington Public Schools program providing services for students aged 18-21 who benefit from special education services after they've completed high school and helps them demonstrate independence in community-based settings.

“We are incredibly proud of the partnership between our students and staff at BTC. For the fourth year in a row they have succeeded in teaching, modeling and acknowledging positive social, emotional and behavioral skills at a high level,” said executive director of student services, Jennifer McIntyre.

BTC will be honored by MDE Commissioner Willie Jett during the PBIS Summer Institute and Recognition Ceremony June 14-15.
