Dear Principal Hameister and the Lambert Elementary School Staff,

It is with great pleasure I announce that Lambert Elementary School has received the PBIS Honor Plus School Award for the 2012-13 school year. This award recognizes the Lambert Elementary School community for their great effort, enthusiasm and commitment that has brought them to this level of implementation of School-wide PBIS.

To receive this recognition schools must show evidence that certain criteria were met. Specific criteria included having a representative, school-based leadership team who developed the necessary tools and products, and have rolled out their PBIS plan to students, staff and families. Honor Plus schools consistently teach and acknowledge behavioral expectations and apply a continuum of consequences for behaviors not consistent with the expectations. At this level, Honor Plus schools have developed competence utilizing discipline data to make decisions regarding Universal and Targeted supports. In addition, Honor Plus schools have met fidelity on the Benchmarks of Quality and use this assessment to begin the development of a multi-tiered action plan. Your products, data and action plan for future steps to implementation have been reviewed and your award has been endorsed by your AEA PBIS Coordinator and the PBIS Iowa Leadership Team.

Congratulations to all of you for your hard work implementing School-wide PBIS during the 2012-13 school year. We wish you continued success with this valuable endeavor. 

My best to you,

Susan Bruce
PBIS Consultant, Iowa Department of Education
