Do you know a school using the PBIS framework?
This year the service is open to PBIS teams that are recognized next June (2019) as a Sustaining Exemplar School by the Minnesota Department of Education.
How it works: We give $500 to your PBIS team when it receives the Sustaining Exemplar Award.
The purpose of the service is to help schools elevate the importance of their school climate work by supporting and recognizing the people implementing evidence-based practices.
This year funding (what is available) is open to PBIS teams that are recognized next June (2019) as a Sustaining Exemplar School by the Minnesota Department of Education. Depending on available funding it is projected that PBIS schools that receive Sustaining Exemplar Award in June 2019 can be eligible to receive $500 from Peacemaker Minnesota. The deadline to sign up is September 14, 2018 and the form can be found at: http://www.peacemakermn.org/index.php/class-time-certification .
Also, in order for schools to receive these funds they must sign up to be a Partner School which requires a $100.00 fee. This application form can be completed after September 14th but before a school is eligible to be awarded the possible $500.00 stipend. Information and the application form to become a Partner School can be found at: http://www.peacemakermn.org/index.php/become-a-partner-school. Please note that you will be required to provide outcome data to participate.

Recommendations for Common PBIS Experiences
Welcome back to a new school year! Below are links to recommendations for common experiences that schools encounter after having been trained and implementing PBIS over time.
- Most of our PBIS team that went through training is no longer working here.
- We have a new principal.What’s the best way to transition?
- Our building needs a PBIS booster.
How do we do that?
- We don’t have current data.
How do we start getting a data system back into place?
- NEW RECOMMENDATION: We obtained Staff buy-in before training. Do we have to continue getting staff buy-in during or after training?
