Four Janesville Schools have been named either Schools of Distinction or Schools of Merit by the Wisconsin PBIS Network. The four schools are: School of Distinction winner Roosevelt E.S.; and the three School of Merit winners Craig H.S., Parker H.S. and Harrison E.S.
The Wisconsin PBIS Network is a Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) funded initiative. PBIS is a proactive approach that established safer and more effective schools and is currently being implemented in approximately 47% of Wisconsin schools. Roosevelt E.S. was one of 87 schools statewide to be recognized as a School of Distinction for the 2012-13 school year. Craig H.S., Parker H.S. and Harrison E.S. are among 146 schools statewide to be recognized as Schools of Merit.
Schools were recognized as either Schools of Distinction or Schools of Merit based on an application process, which included team and meeting information, implementation and outcome date, as well as narrative questions and answers that described the data, systems and practices of PBIS implementation.
As a PBIS School of Distinction, Roosevelt will receive a banner and recognition at the 2013 Wisconsin PBIS Network Summer Leadership Conference on August 20, 2013, one free registration to the conference or the Behavior Education Program DVD, and a certificate. The other three schools will receive a banner and recognition at the 2013 PBIS Network Summer Leadership Conference.
