The School District is proud to announce 40 schools have been chosen as PBIS Model Schools by the Florida Department of Education PBIS Project. PBIS refers to Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support, which encompasses research-based strategies used to increase quality of life and decrease problem behavior by teaching new skills and making changes in a person's environment.

 New liveschools house system - which house is your student in? 

The goal of positive behavior support is to create an environment that enhances the growth of ALL of our students. As a school, we are always looking for new and engaging ways to help teach kindness, positivity, and teamwork. The PBIS “House” system will foster a deeper opportunity for our students to develop and exhibit each of these character traits. Our new House system will go live on the first day of the 2023-2024 school year! Each student (and staff member) will be randomly assigned to a LiveSchool “house”. Our houses will be led by teachers and staff members throughout our school campus. Each time students earn individual points; it will add to their collective house point total. Each month we will get to celebrate the house that has earned the most points (for showing positive behaviors and exhibiting their PAWS expectations, of course!) Each “house” will have a designated color and character word. We can’t wait to unveil these to our families at Open House. These color houses will bring about camaraderie, competition, and SO MUCH FUN for every student and staff member in our school! Below you can see the shields for each of our 8 houses. Your child will find out what house they belong to at Meet Your Teacher Open House (Aug.7th) and will have the option to purchase a house t-shirt for $10 (Cash or check only). Each month there will be designated “color house days” in which students will wear their color house shirts. We can’t wait to see the fun, healthy completion and positive behaviors shining.
