Ozark Horizon School of West Plains and Skyview School of Mtn. Grove have both achieved the Missouri Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support (SW-PBS) Silver Recognition Award of Excellence for the implementation of SW-PBS within the schools.
The two schools will be honored during the 12th annual Missouri SW-PBS Summer Training Institute opening ceremonies at 1 p.m. on June 14 at Tan-Tar-A Resort in Osage Beach. Over 1,000 educators are expected to attend this conference to celebrate the exemplary schools, network with other educators and learn about systems, data and practices that improve behavioral outcomes for students.
SW-PBS is an evidence based, proactive approach to teaching and reinforcing behavioral expectations in order to improve student behavior, maximize instructional time, and increase student engagement, education officials said. Schools achieve the MO SW-PBS Recognition Award of Excellence after a rigorous review of artifacts that represent the quality of their implementation of SW-PBS interventions, as well as evidence that the framework has resulted in improved outcomes for students.
