MOUNT VERNON — On Nov. 30, Knox County Career Center was recognized with a bronze award for its implementation Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports during a ceremony at the Mid-Ohio Conference Center.

PBIS is a scholastic framework with the goal of improving student behavior and academic achievement and the overall school climate. The philosophy focuses on encouraging positive behaviors, rather than just disapproving of unacceptable actions. For instance, a teacher may tell a students to remember an assignment rather than saying “don’t forget your homework.”
