Montana Behavioral Initiative School Recognition System

Early Grades

MBI School Recognition System
The Montana Behavioral Initiative would like to recognize MBI Teams for the time and effort taken to successfully implement MBI at their sites. To accomplish this, MBI has created a multi-tiered recognition system. This system reflects the status of MBI implementation as teams build capacity to consistently and effectively offer positive behavior interventions and supports at each of the three tiers.

Applications for the levels (Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum) include requirements for each level of MBI implementation, directions for the completion and submission of the application, and required information needed for the Summer Institute award ceremony. The applications can be downloaded from the gray box below.

Applications, documentation, narrative, and photos need to be submitted to your site's MBI Consultant no later than May 6, 2016. Please work closely with your consultant as you build your MBI process and reflect on the integrity and sustainability of your efforts.

Schools receiving recognition will be notified by OPI prior to the Summer Institute. Recognition status levels will be announced at the award ceremony during the Wednesday morning session of MBI Summer Institute.

Please contact your consultant for clarification if you have further questions.
