The Rhinelander High School PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) team was recognized as a 2016 School of Merit by the Wisconsin PBIS network. This award, given to schools with full PBIS implementation, was presented to the team at this summer’s WI PBIS Network conference in Wisconsin Dells on August 16, 2016.
Schools of Merit must meet a variety of criteria to be recognized, such as having full teams of teachers and administrators that meets regularly. This team uses their meeting times to discuss referral data collected by the team, and use that data to create an action plan and guide the implementation of PBIS supports. In addition, the team shares that data with the staff and receives input from both staff and students about the behaviors observed and what incentives should be planned next. Upon receipt of the award, the RHS PBIS team is now eligible to represent RHS by presenting at future WI PBIS Network conferences, in addition to being recognized for implementing PBIS with integrity.
On the first day of school this year, the staff of RHS celebrated the award by posing with the banner they received with the award while wearing their PBIS car giveaway shirts. Congratulations Rhinelander High School and their PBIS team!
