29 Moreno Valley Unified schools awarded Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) medals in state

The California PBIS Coalition has awarded PBIS recognition medals to 29 schools in the Moreno Valley Unified School District (MVUSD). The group publicly announced the winners earlier this week. PBIS is a framework of support that educators use to focus on individual students as they achieve improvement in academics and behavior.
“PBIS is helping all of our students be in a school with positive relationships between student and educators. It is a crucial piece of our LCAP goals of reducing suspensions and expulsions,” said Superintendent Dr. Martinrex Kedziora. “PBIS in our schools is ensuring that all students have an equal opportunity to succeed in a positive school climate and further our motto of Excellence on Purpose.”
Moreno Valley Unified School District is entering its fifth year using PBIS. The 2017-18 school year was the first year MVUSD used PBIS in all 40 schools.
“We are extremely proud that so many of our schools were recognized with PBIS medals,” said Board of Education President Susan Smith, “Students develop positive and respectful traits that are used every day in school as well as throughout their lives.”
Hidden Springs Elementary led the way with a Gold Medal Award for their PBIS implementation. Only 91 schools in the state earned a Gold Medal.
MVUSD also had 27 schools receive Silver Recognition Medals and one school receive Bronze Recognition Medals. A full list of schools is provided below. Educators at these schools are working diligently to change school climate and culture. By sustaining the PBIS culture educators continue to see an increase in academic achievements.
The award winners will be recognized at the California PBIS Conference later this month in Sacramento.
