Youngstown Schools, District Receive Recognition

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Youngstown City School District and nine schools will be honored at the 2023 Ohio Positive Behavioral Interventions Support Showcase.

The school district will receive the District Recognition Award, and the schools will be recognized for improving student outcomes. Choffin Career & Technical Center, East High School, East Middle School and Volney Rogers Elementary have risen from a bronze to silver medal. 

“YCSD has embedded within all of our schools the importance of providing a positive environment and educational excellence,” said YCSD Superintendent Jeremy Batchelor. “We are honored to be recognized by the PBIS Network and the Ohio Department of Education. Our dedicated PBIS teams are fully committed to working with our scholars to further their development socially and academically.”

PBIS is a data-driven model that builds on the component of developing relationships. It is a framework that guides school teams in selecting, integrating and implementing evidence-based practices for improving all students’ academic, social and behavioral outcomes.

The showcase will be held Jan. 31. More information is available HERE.
