Due to the impact of COVID-19 on schools, no schools will be deemed “inactive” based on last year. The typical Acknowledgements process is on hold for this year. The application for this year’s recognition can be found here.


Guidelines for VTPBIS Network of Active Schools

Inclusion in the VTPBIS Network of Schools is demonstrated by the following:

  1. Data: The school completes annual assessments (SAS and Annual TFI).
  2. Communication: Contact with a State-Approved VTPBIS Coach or State TA is maintained. Communication between the school and its Supervisory Union/District Coordinator is ongoing.
  3. Participation: VTPBIS School and SU/SD Coordinators attend Coordinator meetings and other relevant trainings.
  4. Training: School Teams need to be trained by a VTPBIS state-approved trainer. For questions, please contact your State TA.

Inclusion in the Network results in access to technical assistance, implementation coaching, and VTPBIS training. Network schools will be included in all electronic communications and will be eligible to receive annual VTPBIS acknowledgements based on fidelity of implementation.

The list of VTPBIS Network schools will be generated each August for the next school year.

VTPBIS Annual Acknowledgements

Every year the VTPBIS State Team acknowledges PBIS schools for their achievements. Annual Acknowledgements will be awarded at our Fall VTPBIS Forum. Check the Professional Development Calendar for dates! – On hold for school year 2019-2020!

  • Completing the annual Self-Assessment Survey (SAS) to help plan/revise implementation

VTPBIS Exemplar School
