Eighteen schools in the Garden Grove Unified School District received awards for excellence in implementing PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports). PBIS helps schools promote positive student behavior and a warm and welcoming school climate and culture. The 2022-2023 awards from the California PBIS Coalition recognize schools that are among the best in California at applying PBIS strategies to promote positive school climate and positive student behavior. 

GGUSD schools that received the Platinum Implementation Award include Hazard, Heritage, and Sunnyside elementary schools and McGarvin Intermediate School. Schools that received the Gold Implementation Award include Bryant, Clinton, Mitchell, Rosita, Stanley, and Violette elementary schools and Doig and Ralston intermediate schools.  Five schools received the Silver Implementation Award including Carrillo, Crosby, Patton, Paine, and Wakeham elementary schools.
