All Five OASD Elementary Schools Awarded for PBIS Work
Posted 09/14/2017 12:33PM

Time to celebrate!

All five OASD elementary schools received Silver Level Recognition from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) for their ability to fully implement their behavioral work in Positive Behaviors Interventions & Supports (PBIS) at the universal school wide level for at least two years in a row and at a Tier 2, selected level/small group, for at least one year. This work lays a solid foundation for the future expansion and refinement of our culturally responsive multi-level system of support. This marks the third year in a row OASD has achieved DPI recognition at the elementary level.

Lisa Dawes, Director of Special Education/Student Services in the Oconomowoc Area School District stated, "Our schools are very proud of their work in PBIS and the difference it makes for students when staff teach behavioral expectations and recognize students for following those expectations.  As our schools implement PBIS at the small group and individual student levels (tier 2 and 3) we will be seeking DPI recognition beyond the Silver Level."
