What is PBS?
PBS is a collaborative, assessment-based approach to developing effective interventions for problem behavior. The program emphasizes the use of proactive, educative, and reinforcement-based strategies to achieve meaningful
and durable behavior and lifestyle outcomes.

The Positive Behavior Support team in conjunction with faculty members at Milwee Middle School devised three key recognition programs as part of PBS within the school. These programs are designed to recognize those individuals who do the right thing in upholding the RISE expectations on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. Teachers and administrators are responsible for acknowledging students by giving specific and positive feedback to students who are meeting school-wide expectations: these recognition programs are intended to complement this direct response to positive student behavior.
