Welcome to DPI
Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) Diversity, Prevention & Intervention (DPI) Department’s goal is to lead the change for all BCPS students in achieving lifelong academic, behavioral, social and emotional success. This goal is achieved by providing essential services, supports and resources to all BCPS. DPI’s resources are grouped into the 6 strands of prevention: Diversity, Health & Wellness, Instructional Strategies, Substance Abuse Prevention, Violence Prevention, and Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS)/Academic & Behavioral Supports.
Research supports the link between prevention and academic success. Schools play a critical role in delivering prevention programs while promoting academic excellence. DPI ensures BCPS achieves this by utilizing the Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS.)
MTSS use a data driven tiered approach to instruction delivery that includes interventions of increasingly higher intensity, based on each student’s needs – academic, behavioral, social and emotional. Resources and interventions for the other strands of prevention (diversity, health & wellness, instructional strategies, substance abuse and violence prevention) are provided within the MTSS tiered model at the universal (Tier 1), targeted group (Tier 2), and intensive (Tier 3) levels.
Partner with DPI and ensure all your students reach their highest potential.
