Kirksville R-III School District
The Kirksville R-III School District has been implementing SW-PBS for over 10 years. Schools provide students with universal, targeted and intensive supports. District-wide, Office Discipline Referrals decreased dramatically during the first two years of implementation, and have held steady ever since. Indeed, Office Discipline Referrals for the 2015-2016 school year are only 23% of what they were when the district initially adopted SW-PBS.
The Kirksville Early Childhood Learning Center (ECLC) has been at the cutting edge of SW-PBS implementation in the state of Missouri, and provides a model for other Missouri schools in terms of SW-PBS implementation, stakeholder engagement, and presenting at National Conferences.
Congratulations to Kirksville R-III school district, winner of the 2016 Mary Miller Richter District of Distinction Award.
