Keystone Educators Accept Award for Positive Behavior Initiative

Keystone Educators Accept Award for Positive Behavior Initiative

(L to R) Dave Kish, James Kohler, and Toni Filut accept the Bronze Award from the Ohio Department of Education's State Support Team.

Keystone Schools implemented Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) programs in 2017-2018 to recognize and commend positive behavior. PBIS programs reduce problem behavior, increase academic performance, reduce bullying behaviors, and generate a positive school culture.

Based on the program’s implementation, the Ohio Department of Education’s State Support Team awarded the Bronze Award to all three Keystone Schools. This is highest award a school can receive for the first year of PBIS implementation.

Administrators Dave Kish, James Kohler, and Toni Filut accepted the award on behalf of the Keystone District. In addition to earning this distinction, Keystone administrators were chosen to present facets of their PBIS program to other districts at a state-wide conference.  

Keystone is committed to continuing this process and taking their PBIS program to the next level.
