Minnesota PBIS Sustaining Exemplar Recognition

The purpose of Minnesota PBIS Sustaining Exemplar Recognition is to identify and recognize exemplar schools that have completed PBIS implementation and are continuing to achieve positive student outcomes. These schools and districts are able to demonstrate exemplary status by sustaining school-wide PBIS with fidelity in the current 2017-2018 school year. Criteria are based on effective implementation of the essential components outlined by our national Technical Assistance Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports.

2017-2018 Sustaining Exemplar Schools

To be identified as a Sustaining Exemplar School, schools needed to have completed training and demonstrate continued implementation of SW-PBIS with fidelity. In the application, schools document the work of their leadership team, a data system measuring effort, fidelity and outcome data, a system of data analysis and action planning, sustainability efforts, and giving back at the local, state or national level. The following types of schools are eligible to apply:

  • Cohort schools (those that have completed a two-year training sequence with the state or a regional implementation project).
  • Non-cohort schools (those that have received training through a source other than the state or a regional training implementation project).

2017-2018 Exemplar PBIS District Recognition

In addition to individual school recognition, districts that are coordinating and supporting their PBIS schools are invited to apply for district recognition. To be identified for District PBIS Recognition, districts must demonstrate capacity for coordination, training, coaching and evaluation to support schools in their district to implement SW-PBIS.

There are two levels of recognition at the district level. The first is to highlight districts that are in progress towards sustaining implementation and have multiple schools measuring fidelity annually. The second is to highlight districts that have demonstrated exemplar district capacity with over 60% of schools implementing SW-PBIS with fidelity as measure annually.

There are four districts being recognized as 2017-2018 Exemplar District Capacity PBIS District:

  • Eastern Carver County Schools has 15 schools in the district.  All 15 schools have been trained in PBIS.  Fourteen schools have measured fidelity in the past year and all 14 are implementing SW-PBIS at Tier 1 with fidelity.  
  • Forest Lake Area Schools has 13 schools in the district. All 13 schools have been trained in PBIS. Ten schools measured fidelity in the past year and 9 of the schools are implementing SW-PBIS at Tier 1 with fidelity.
  • St. Cloud Area School District has 16 schools in the district.  All 16 have been trained in PBIS.  Fifteen schools have measured fidelity in the past year and 9 of those are implementing SW-PBIS at Tier 1 with fidelity.  
  • St. Paul Public Schools has 63 schools in the district.  Sixteen schools have been trained in PBIS through the state cohort model and an additional 14 have been trained internally.  Twenty-nine schools measured fidelity in the past year and 28 of those are implementing SW-PBIS at Tier 1 with fidelity.
