Beginning with the 2007-08 school year, schools participating in the NC PBIS Initiative have been able to apply annually for recognition by documenting PBIS implementation activities. Schools earning recognition are able to document ongoing administrator participation, an active PBIS team and in-school coach. These schools also regularly measure implementation progress.
Three levels of NC PBIS Recognition were created so schools would be eligible to earn recognition in early phases of implementation, as well as in later stages. The three levels of recognition are:

PBIS Green Ribbon Schools

  • have completed Module 1 team training and begun PBIS implementation

  • have attained at least 80% or higher for Tier 1 on the Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI)

  • have a minimum score of 80 on the School-wide Evaluation Tool (SET) or 70 on the Brief School-wide Evaluation Tool (BSET)

PBIS Model Schools

  • have completed Modules 1 & 2 team training and are actively implementing PBIS

  • have attained at least 80% or higher for Tiers 1 and 2 on the Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI)

  • have a minimum score of 90 on the SET or 80 on the BSET

PBIS Exemplar Schools
