Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS)
Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) is a proactive approach based on a three-tiered model of prevention and intervention aimed at creating safe and effective schools. Emphasis is placed on teaching and reinforcing important social skills and data-based problem-solving to address existing behavior concerns. PBIS is being implemented in thousands of schools across the country and has been demonstrated to reduce discipline problems and increase time for instruction.
At Strong Middle School we focus on our students having Cardinal P.R.I.D.E.
Students exhibiting Cardinal PRIDE are recognized monthly by attending PBIS events. These events are no cost to students and require them to have minimal minor incidents, no major incidents or suspensions, and good attendance.
