Clay County Schools Recognized for Student Support

Fifteen schools in Clay County have been honored for their efforts to encourage positive student behavior and create school environments that support students.

The 15 schools received the Missouri Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support (MO SW-PBS) Award of Excellence for their “exemplary implementation of multi-tiered systems of behavioral support” during the 2023-24 school year. 

Positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) is a schoolwide approach aimed at establishing positive student culture and individualized behavior supports necessary to create a safe and effective learning environment for all students. It’s defined as a “proactive approach to teaching and reinforcing positive behavior in students, thereby improving student behavior, creating safe schools and maximizing instructional time and student engagement.”

In the North Kansas City School District, schools receiving recognition were: Chouteau Elementary, Crestview Elementary, Gracemor Elementary, Lakewood Elementary, Linden West Elementary, Maplewood Elementary, Meadowbrook Elementary, Nashua Elementary, Ravenwood Elementary, Rising Hill Elementary and Topping Elementary. 

In addition to these winners, three other schools were recognized for more than 10 years earning the recognition: Clardy Elementary, West Englewood Elementary and Eastgate Sixth Grade Center. In the Smithville School District, Maple Elementary School also received recognition.

MO SW-PBS is the largest statewide program focused on schoolwide positive behavior support. The awards were created to recognize schools that achieve positive outcomes for students through exemplary implementation of Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support.
