The kick-off for Positive Behavior Support began during the 2009-2010 school year. Positive Behavior Support will allow us the opportunity to provide a consistent and fair behavior plan. Research and empirical evidence shows that students achieve at a higher level when they know the expectations and feel safe. Positive Behavior Support will help us improve both of these. Our plan provides detailed expectations in every area of the school while putting an extreme emphasis on safety. The success of our plan will improve with time and with the participation of all staff at Smith Middle School. The PBS handbook below describes the entire initiative in detail.
Our plan will focus on three areas: Safety ~ Respect ~ Responsibility
