California Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Coalition awards 30 medals to Moreno Valley Unified schools 

Moreno Valley, Calif. – The California Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Coalition has awarded recognition medals to 30 schools in the Moreno Valley Unified School District for successfully developing systems to create positive, predictable, equitable and safe learning environments where everyone thrives.

“This is the first time we have ever earned this many platinum level awards,” said Superintendent Dr. Martinrex Kedziora. “We are truly proud of this achievement and know it would not be possible without the collaboration and support of everyone - students, staff, and families.”

PBIS is a framework of support that educators use to focus on individual students as they achieve improvement in academics and behavior. This award is based on a rigorous review of school practices and verification by a visit to the site. PBIS schools across the state are evaluated annually on how well they implement each of the three PBIS tiers using a nationally recognized evaluation method:

  • Tier 1 encompasses systems, data, and practices that support everyone – students, educators, and staff – across all school settings. They establish a foundation for positive and proactive support. 

  • Tier 2 includes everything in Tier 1, in addition to an added layer of systems, data, and practices targeting their specific needs. This is for small groups of students who may need additional guidance.

  • Tier 3 provides students more intensive, individualized support to improve their outcomes. Tier 3 support is available to any student with intensive need, whether they receive special education services or not.

Based on these evaluations and practices, schools in California may earn bronze, silver, gold, or platinum recognition.

“Only 150 schools in the state earned a Platinum Medal,” said School Board President Cleveland Johnson. “We are proud to know six of them are our very own schools.” 

The 2017-18 school year was the first year MVUSD used PBIS in all 40 schools. Now, 75 percent of schools are being recognized for their implementation of PBIS:
