Schools honored for PBIS efforts

Date: 
Tuesday, May 9, 2017
Director Ryan Wise congratulates schools who have done well with PBIS.

Seventy-five schools were recognized in Des Moines today for their work in establishing safe and supportive environments, enabling students to maximize their social emotional and academic success.

The schools were recognized during the Iowa Department of Education’s 2017 Learning Supports Conference.

The recognition stems from the schools’ work in Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports, or PBIS. PBIS is a proactive approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional and academic success.
 
Supported by the Iowa Department of Education, PBIS provides schools with the framework and organizational plan to promote and maximize academic achievement and behavioral competence for all students.

The awards were given based on how involved the school is with PBIS, ranging from Banner to Paramount. Those honored are:
