Posted on 10/21/2016
On Thursday, October 20th, Sultana Sports & Science Academy was recognized by our OMSD Board of Trustees. Sultana was one of five OMSD schools recognized as PBIS Gold Implementation winners in the inaugural year of PBIS recognition by the California PBIS Coalition.
PBIS, short for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports, is a proactive approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional and academic success. Research shows that school climate strongly influences students' motivation to learn and improve academic achievement. When school members feel safe, valued, cared for, respected, and engaged, learning increases. Essentially, a positive school climate provides the foundation on which instruction will occur and all students will learn, therefore, the implementation of positive behavior intervention techniques is paramount for our school's and students' success.
