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.

    Wonderbar. No self congratulatory awards for Highland View and the Junior High?

    Fill out the paperwork, pay to attend some state paid for meetings and get a certificate to put on the wall.
