Several Huntley 158 Schools Recognized for PBIS Excellence

Seven Huntley 158 schools were recognized by the Midwest PBIS Network for outstanding implementation of the PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) system in 2016-17.

PBIS is a proven model for establishing and promoting positive behavioral supports needed for students to achieve success at all levels. PBIS guides schools in identifying, implementing, and sustaining effective practices to create a positive school culture that is safe, respectful, and conducive to learning.

Once each school year, the Midwest PBIS Network formally recognizes schools across the state that demonstrate implementation and sustainability of the PBIS process through measurable criteria.

Within the PBIS framework, schools set positive behavioral expectations for all students and provide a variety of rewards when students meet them. In addition, a number of tiered supports are put into place to intervene when expectations are not met.

Huntley 158 has been recognized as a statewide leader in implementing PBIS, regularly hosting visits from other districts seeking to learn about the system within our schools.
