Proud PBIS Gold Status Third Year in a Row

Proud PBIS Gold Status Third Year in a Row

Southport Middle School is proud to announce that for the third year in a row we have earned Gold status achievement for our PBIS programs. According to St. Lucie Public Schools (SLPS) “22 schools of distinction are recognized as Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) Model Schools – an increase of seven from last years’ pool of honorees.  The University of South Florida (USF), manager of the PBIS Project for the State of Florida, provided Executive Director of Student Services and Exceptional Student Education Bill Tomlinson with notification of this elite cadre of schools. “This positive trend is a reflection of the focused efforts the District is making in schools to support the needs of all children both academically and behaviorally through a multi-tiered system of supports.  Reaching Model School Status with Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports, is representative of our commitment to create a culture that promotes appropriate social and emotional learning for all children.”

PBIS is a school-wide behavioral approach that focuses on increasing academic performance and increasing safety while decreasing problem behaviors with specific and consistent strategies.  A focus on individual needs using data along with positive and effective strategies are also key elements to a successful PBIS school-wide plan.

Robert O’Neill serves as the District’s PBIS coordinator and also bridges efforts with SLPS and USF.  He explained that achievement of Model School status is a purposeful and united effort — the result of collaboration between Student Services personnel and site-based personnel working to provide for the needs of students and to build the Multi-Tiered System of Supports in the schools.  He added that educational professionals work together to address appropriate behavior and celebrate students’ goal attainment.”
