Canterbury Earns School of Merit Awards
Canterbury Elementary School has earned two “School of Merit” awards from the Wisconsin RtI Center. For the second consecutive year, the school was one of 222 statewide to be recognized for work accomplished through its implementation of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS).
Additionally, Canterbury was one of 125 schools statewide receiving School of Merit honors in Reading for its work in the implementation of a culturally responsive multilevel system of support.
PBIS is a framework that enables the school to be more effective and responsive to student social-emotional needs by implementing a multilevel system of support for behavior.
“We are excited to be named ‘School of Merit’ for our work with the students of Canterbury,” said Michael Mullen, principal of Canterbury. “Our staff is diligent about meeting student needs in all areas of their growth and development. Understanding the importance of social-emotional and academic supports allows us to help students learn to the best of their ability in a personalized environment.”
The Wisconsin Response to Intervention (RtI) Center is funded by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. Canterbury will be recognized at the annual PBIS Leadership Conference this August.
