Woodland Earns Recognition for PBIS Implementation
Time to celebrate! Woodland has recently been recognized for our work implementing equitable, multi-tiered systems of support. This is a school-wide framework aimed at closing achievement gaps, and supporting our students in meeting ROAR expectations.
This framework has helped us increase the consistency of effective instruction for all students, build staff knowledge and skills to support all learners, use data to proactively identify and provide support for students, and shift to a culture that supports stronger relationships with students and their families.
All four schools were recognized by the Midwest PBIS Network. Learn more about Midwest PBIS Network’s Recognition.
