On Friday, August 26, we were notified that Hughes Elementary had received recognition for our work in student support. This is as a result of the efforts of the entire staff, our students, and you, our community that support our students.
The recognition read, " On behalf of the California PBIS Coalition, we are pleased to recognize Bernard Hughes Elementary School of the Empire Union School District for successful PBIS implementation at the PLATINUM level. Your school is a recipient within the California PBIS Coalition’s System of Recognition, reflecting excellence in the implementation of the core features of PBIS."
"Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based, tiered framework for supporting students’ behavioral, academic, social, emotional, and mental health. When implemented with fidelity, PBIS improves social emotional competence, academic success, and school climate. It also improves teacher health and wellbeing. It is a way to create positive, predictable, equitable and safe learning environments where everyone thrives. " (PBIS.org)
