Pyramid In Your Program

  • Program-wide implementation of the Pyramid Model refers to a systematic effort within a program for Pyramid Model implementation fidelity.
  • In program-wide implementation, a leadership team guides the implementation process and develops the supports and infrastructure needed to ensure that evidence based practices promoted by the Pyramid Model are implemented to the degree necessary to ensure best outcomes for children and families.
  • Implementation to fidelity is at least a three to five year project with supports offered through New York State for training and leadership coaching.
  • Evidence-based practices are effective only when implemented with fidelity.

Program-wide implementation sites are first assessed as a whole using the Benchmarks of Quality which guides the leadership team with action steps to full implementation.
