The Ohio PBIS Network & State Support Teams identify schools that exemplify best practices in the implementation of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). A recognized school demonstrates best practices within its system, and also is open and transparent in the sharing of their knowledge and resources with other schools. In applying for recognition, the school agrees to external verification of its application data and confirms its openness to involvement with the Ohio PBIS facilitation/coaching supports.
PBIS Award level schools have easily identifiable characteristics and are consistent in their methods of: 1) main-taining organized team based planning, 2) maintaining high levels of administrative involvement and support, and 3) systematically collecting, reviewing and applying data using a problem-solving process. These schools do a superior job of enhancing their school climate and culture in support of students and their academic achieve-ment. These schools recognize that improvement in student behavior and achievement requires changes in adult behavior and in school systems.
