                            24 Brevard Schools Recognized by USF as Models Schools for Positive Behavioral Interventions & Support
By: Rene Rains, BPS PBIS Contact
Brevard Public Schools currently has 41 schools trained
to implement Tier 1 Positive Behavioral Interventions
and Supports (PBIS) at their schools. For the 2017-2018 school year, there are 24 of the 41 PBIS schools that are being recognized as Tier 1 PBIS Model schools. This means that 59% of all PBIS schools are being recognized for their implementation efforts -- a substantial increase from the nine schools recognized just four years ago.
Model schools undergo a rigorous process to achieve one of these prestigious awards. A Model School is one that exemplifies best practices and fidelity of implementation of the Tier 1 PBIS process.
Judging Criteria:
1. Utilizing data to better serve students and staff,
2. Teaching school-wide expectations throughout the year,
3. Creative and engaging student recognition systems,
4. Extending PBIS throughout campus and partnering with the community and parents, and
5. Incorporating PBIS into daily activities.
PBIS schools must meet the Bronze criteria and also exemplify improved student outcomes for office discipline referrals (ODR) and out of school suspensions (OSS) over the last
two school years.
Schools must meet both Bronze and Silver criteria and, in addition to be eligible for the Gold award, schools need to demonstrate some equitable student outcomes for ODR and OSS for the 17-18 school year.
We are pleased to announce that seven Brevard Public Schools met the Silver criteria: Andrew Jackson Middle School, Apollo Elementary School, Endeavour Elementary School, Herbert C. Hoover Middle School, Imperial Estates Elementary School, and James Madison Middle School.
We are extremely proud of the 18 schools in Brevard
that have met the Gold criteria: Atlantis Elementary School, Cambridge Elementary Magnet School, Cape View Elementary School, Challenger 7 Elementary School, Croton Elementary School, Eau Gallie High School, Golfview Elementary Magnet School, Harbor City Elemen- tary School, Heritage High School, Jupiter Elementary School, Longleaf Elementary School, Lyndon B. Johnson Middle School, MILA Elementary School, Mims Elementary School, Oak Park Elementary School, Sabal Elementary School, Sherwood Elementary School and Sunrise Elementary School. These schools will be receiving banners, stickers and certificates from the University
of South Florida’s Positive Behavior Support/ Multi-Tiered System of Support Project.
Positive Behavior Support is being implemented nationally in over 26,000 schools and in approximately 1,700 schools across the state of Florida. During the 2017-2018 school year, 301 Model Schools Awards were given out to schools in Florida. We are extremely proud of our BPS 24 Model Schools and other PBIS schools in Brevard County for continuing to work toward a more positive social climate through their PBIS efforts.
