S. RAY LOWDER ELEMENTARY RECOGNIZED FOR PBIS WORK
Receives Honor from North Carolina’s Department of Public Instruction
S. Ray Lowder Elementary of Lincoln County Schools will be recognized by the Exceptional Children Division of the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction at the annual Positive Behavior Intervention & Support (PBIS) Initiative Workshop & Recognition.
S. Ray Lowder Elementary was recognized as an Exemplar School for the 2013-14 school year.
Keeping students engaged and maintaining a healthy, productive school environment is more important than ever. PBIS is a framework of intervention practices, decision-making tools, and organizational systems used to establish the positive and productive learning environment needed for all students to achieve success. Schools that fully implement PBIS can expect to manage behavior more efficiently and consistently, decrease unwanted behavior, and witness a positive change in school climate.
Schools applied to earn recognition by submitting multiple reports documenting that they met implementation criteria. S. Ray Lowder Elementary has been a part of that state-wide PBIS Initiative since 2008 and works to improve PBIS implementation through ongoing evaluation. This is the sixth year that S. Ray Lowder Elementary has earned state PBIS Recognition.
