PBIS Recognition, Visitation and Showcase

Each year the Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS) Network via the 16 Ohio State Support Teams (SST) recognizes schools for their quality and fidelity of PBIS implementation. Schools are eligible to receive awards at the bronze, silver or gold level of distinction. The 130 school and districts receiving 2018 awards were recognized at the annual Ohio PBIS Showcase.

The 130 schools and districts that received 2018 PBIS award recognition are available to view at the Ohio Department of Education website education.ohio.gov. 2018 Award-Winning Schools.

Real life applications of PBIS in preschool through high school settings were shared in the two-day event. The state superintendent of public instruction, Paolo DeMaria, gave energizing opening remarks at the conference.
The conference also highlighted the bronze, silver and gold awards received by the 130 Ohio PBIS schools. The conference was held at the Crowne Plaza North-Worthington in central Ohio.
