Positive Behavior Support
Our Mission at O.W. Best Middle School is Achievement, Responsibility, and Success in Life. To accomplish this goal we will be using Positive Behavior Support or PBS. This plan will provide detailed expectations of the students in every area of the school. Each area will emphasize the Three “BE’s”. BE Safe, BE Responsible, BE Respectful.
School-wide Positive Behavior Support (SWPBS) 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. SWPBS is being implemented in thousands of schools across the country and has been demonstrated to reduce discipline problems and increase time for instruction.
