Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports at SAVA

SAVA's PBIS Matrix
  • SAVA PBIS Silver Medal

    We are proud to announce that Santa Ana Virtual Academy has been awarded the prestigious Silver PBIS Medal, a recognition of our dedicated efforts in implementing the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) framework.


    Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based three-tiered framework system that improves and integrates all data, systems, and practices affecting academic and behavioral outcomes for students every day. PBIS promotes student achievement!

    At Santa Ana Virtual Academy, all staff work together to support students using PBIS best practices. These include school-wide expectations that are shared with students and their families. SAVA students know that they are expected to be:

    • Safe
    • Actively Engaged
    • Virtually Responsible
    • Always Respectful

    A very important part of PBIS is rewarding students for positive behavior. We do this in a number of ways. In addition to receiving positive verbal and written feedback, students can also be recognized in SAVA's weekly news!

    Our Journey to Excellence:

    At Santa Ana Virtual Academy, we believe in fostering an educational environment where every student feels valued and empowered. Implementing the PBIS framework has been a key part of our strategy to enhance student behavior and academic outcomes through positive reinforcement and supportive interventions.
