On behalf of the RUSD Board of Education, and Superintendent, Dr. Cuauhtémoc Avila, congratulations to Rialto and Carter High Schools, Jehue and Kucera Middle Schools, and Kelley Elementary School, for earning the coveted (and inaugural) “Bronze Level Recognition” from the California Positive Behaviors Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Coalition. All five RUSD schools reflected excellence in measurement of fidelity as well as efforts in implementing the core features of PBIS. Each RUSD school’s name will be displayed on the California PBIS Coalition webpage and recognized at the Annual California PBIS Coalition Conference, in Sacramento, on Thursday, September 22, 2016. All schools’ PBIS team members will be honored, formally, at the next RUSD school board meeting, held on Wednesday, August 24, 2016, 7:00 p.m. at the KEC.
PBIS is a framework for enhancing the adoption and implementation of a continuum of interventions that can be visualized as a triangle. It has three tiers: primary prevention, with resources and support available to all children in a school; secondary prevention, for a more tailored group of students displaying at-risk behavior; and tertiary prevention, specialized individualized systems of support for students who display high-risk behavior.
