Time to celebrate!

Time to celebrate! Our school has been recognized for our resilience in implementing a school-wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) framework during the 2020- 2021 school year. PBIS is a set of strategies based in behavioral and biomedical science that enhances student quality of life and reduces problem behaviors. National research shows that full implementation of this framework leads to improved student outcomes. By establishing this framework, we are developing student skills, making changes to the school environment, acknowledging appropriate student behavior, and using data to identify needed supports for our students. As a result of this work, we are being recognized by the FLPBIS Project for achieving PBIS Model School status. This award demonstrates our commitment to the effective implementation of PBIS and our efforts towards achieving positive and equitable outcomes for all students.
