School Recognition

 

What makes a PBIS School?

Each year the National PBIS Technical Assistance Center contacts the State Coordinator in each state to ask for a school count of PBIS schools at each level: Preschool, Elementary, Middle, High and K-8/12.
What constitutes a PBIS school is a five part definition. These schools need to have:

  • Pre and post PBIS assessments (SET, BoQ, etc)
  • A data management system
  • A dedicated PBIS team in place, who is trained by someone linked to the Maine TA Center
  • A timeline of implementation for at least one year
  • A written action plan

This year the following schools were reported to the National PBIS TA Center. Congratulations!

  • Alexander School Dept – Alexander PK-8

What makes an 80/80 School?

Schools strive to move from Tier 1 to Tiers 2 and 3 to provide intervention and support to those students who don't respond to Universal supports. Using the Schoolwide Evaluation Tool (SET) the goal is to obtain 80% in Teaching and 80% in overall implementation of the seven components of schoolwide PBIS. This year the following schools met the 80/80 mark and will be continuing their work on Tier 1 and building Tier 2. This is a tremendous honor and a reflection of the time and commitment put forth by the PBIS/Universal Teams and the support of the school staff and administration. Congratulations!

How does a school earn Bronze, Silver, or Gold level?

The Maine TAC has defined certain criteria for the Bronze, Silver, and Gold levels. Our School Recognition System (pdf) is a way of recognizing schools who have dedicated their time and effort to implementing PBIS in support of students and staff.
