Josh Preece from the Region 2 State Support Team presented Keystone High School staff with the silver award for their PBIS implementation.
- Keystone District is the very first district in region 2 (Erie, Huron, and Lorain counties) to have all schools (EL, MS, HS) receive PBIS recognition.
- Keystone Schools were the very first recipients of silver-level PBIS recognition in region 2.
- Keystone has assisted other districts and has been cited as an example for other schools and districts to follow by regional trainers.
PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. The purpose of this program is to recognize and commend positive behavior. The key attributes of PBIS include implementing preventative activities to address problem areas, creating data-driven solutions, and engaging in effective problem solving techniques. Statistically, PBIS has been shown to reduce problem behavior, increase academic performance, reduce bullying behaviors, and generate a positive school culture. This is accomplished at Keystone through the P.R.I.D.E. (Positive, Responsible, Integrity, Driven, Engaged) Program. When students exemplify Positivity, Responsibility, Integrity, Drive, and Engagement, they earn positive affirmation that their good deeds do not go unseen.
