Our school has recently been recognized for our work implementing a school-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) framework. PBIS is an evidence-based three-tiered prevention framework designed to improve and integrate all data, systems, and practices impacting student outcomes.
National research shows that full implementation of PBIS reduces exclusionary discipline and improves student and teacher outcomes. By establishing the PBIS framework, we are developing the skills of the students and adults, making system changes to our school environment to enhance the school climate, acknowledging appropriate behavior, and using data to identify needed supports for our students and teachers.
As a result of this work, we were recognized by the FLPBIS Project for achieving PLATINUM PBIS Model School status. This award. It helps us celebrate our efforts as we progress toward the full implementation of PBIS.
