Cordova Meadows, White Rock earn state awards for school climate

PBIS Silver Award logo Cordova Meadows and White Rock elementary schools in Rancho Cordova have been selected as Silver Award recipients from the California PBIS Coalition. What is PBIS? It stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports, and is a framework for supporting the academic, social, emotional, and behavioral success of students. 

When PBIS is implemented successfully, schools often see reductions in major disciplinary infractions, improvements in academic engagement and achievement, and less incidents of bullying. 

Cordova Meadows and White Rock were among the honorees recognized at the fourth-annual California PBIS Conference Oct. 28-29.
