The Ohio PBIS Recognition Awards System identifies schools that exemplify best practices in the implementation of PBIS. These schools demonstrate best practices within their system, and must be open and transparent in sharing their knowledge and resources with other schools. Seven Mile Elementary School applied for recognition earlier this year. The school agreed to external verification of its application data and confirmed its openness to involvement with the Ohio PBIS facilitation/coaching supports. There are three levels that are recognized by the Ohio PBIS Award System: Bronze (for schools who are in their first year of implementing PBIS), Silver, and Gold. Bronze level schools are required to consistently utilize data-based problem solving in existing team structures. These schools are expected to produce evidence of organized team meeting notes and data based program planning as part of their PBIS strategy.
The Seven Mile Elementary Team will be recognized at the 2019 Ohio PBIS Showcase in November by the Ohio PBIS Recognition Awards System for achieving the PBIS Bronze Recognition Award.
