Congratulations to over 200 Illinois Schools who applied for Recognition Badges for the 2020-21 school year!

As we all know the past year has been full of unexpected challenges for educators, and we first want to acknowledge your responses to these challenges. We know that those who choose careers in education encounter health and race issues on a daily basis, and have the power to educate students, families, and communities about such topics. We know that by implementing PBIS, you are front and center as an advocate for collective well-being. The effort and dedication to implementing PBIS and improving the related student outcomes are greatly appreciated by our Midwest PBIS Team.

Due to the myriad teaching & learning environments throughout Illinois for the 2020-21 school year, we have updated the Recognition process. The updates to this process will recognize your continued PBIS implementation while highlighting any modifications you have made as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.
