PBIS Recognition Award application and Intent to Apply form available


Ohio’s Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Recognition System provides an opportunity to celebrate schools and districts. Each year, the Department of Education and Workforce and the PBIS Network recognize schools and districts for their quality and fidelity of PBIS implementation. Schools and districts are eligible to receive awards at the bronze, silver, gold, or district level of distinction.

Starting Jan. 22, schools and districts wishing to apply for a PBIS Recognition Award must complete the required Intent to Apply form. Schools and districts can find the Intent to Apply form and related instructions linked in the 2023-2024 PBIS Recognition Award Intent to Apply Form and Application and will submit to their regional state support team by Feb. 12. Applicants will then receive a personal application link by Feb. 20 based on the submission of the Intent to Apply form.

For additional information, schools and districts may contact their regional state support team consultant or the Office of Whole Child Supports at pbisohio@education.ohio.gov
