Congratulations to Borland Manor Elementary on completing all the requirements to be considered a “PA PBS Network Participating Site” during the 2020-2021 school year! This recognition emphasizes the commitment that Borland Manor has made to developing PBIS systems that help to develop the whole child by removing non-academic barriers to learning.
The Pennsylvania Positive Behavior Support Network (PA PBS) is happy to announce this year’s Annual PA PBS Network process. Historically, the purpose of the PA PBS network recognition system is to identify and publicly recognize Pennsylvania’s Program Wide (PW) Sites and School Wide (SW) Sites for successful implementation of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). It also affords PW Sites, SW Sites, and districts the opportunity to accurately reflect on their progress implementing and sustaining PBIS. Due to the extraordinary impact on the day to day activities of schools and programs, during the COVID 19 pandemic, the Network is offering opportunities for schools and programs to maintain forward momentum by committing to PARTICIPATION STATUS during the 2020-2021 school year. The purpose of this Participation Status is to acknowledge the effort programs and schools are making without the pressure of attempting to attain a level of fidelity that may not be possible during a pandemic. There will be no typical recognition process during the 2020-21 year but committing to participation will maintain Borland Manor's eligibility to apply for the level of recognition it has previously attained when the recognition process resumes, hopefully in 2021-22.
"Thank you to the dedicated staff at Borland Manor Elementary School for their commitment to our students. We are proud of our message in our PAWS to Think! program encouraging students to practice safety, act respectful, work hard and show success in all aspects of their school day. Together, with our families at home, we are cultivating young learners to conduct themselves in ways that will someday make them full and productive members of society."
