Danz Named School of Merit

Danz Merit AwardDanz Elementary School was selected by the Wisconsin PBIS Network as a School of Merit for their work accomplished through the implementation of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). The Wisconsin PBIS Network is a Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) funded initiative.

PBIS applies evidence-based practices and strategies for all students to increase academic performance, decrease problem behavior, improve safety, and establish a positive school culture and learning environment. Danz Elementary has been a PBIS school for seven years and has established clear expectations for students by taking proactive steps to teaching, modeling, and reinforcing appropriate behaviors school-wide.Behavior data is consistently monitored to improve the behavioral outcomes of students and maximize student learning opportunities. Staff also use tools to self-assess and modify current practices in an effort to enhance student success.

Danz Elementary School was one of 195 schools statewide to be recognized as a School of Merit for the 2013-14 school year. Schools were recognized as Schools of Merit based on an application process that included team and meeting information, implementation and outcome data, and a narrative that described the data, systems, and practices of PBIS implementation. As a School of Merit, Danz Elementary School received a banner and recognition at the Annual PBIS Leadership Conference in August.

Congratulations and a job well done to the students and staff of Danz Elementary School!
