Positive Behavior Support
    Purpose: To increase the capacity of Carver Middle School to address problem behaviors using Positive Behavior Support.
    Carver has instituted a positive behavior support program in order to build an effective environment that focuses on positive behavior as an effective means of reducing problem behavior. It is a collaborative, assessment-based approach to developing effective interventions for problem behavior. PBS emphasized the use of preventative, teaching, and reinforcement-based strategies to achieve meaningful and durable behavior and lifestyle outcomes.
    The primary elements of our school-wide PBS program are:
    • a PBS team with administrative support
    • faculty commitment and participation
    • effective discipline
    • data analysis and review
    • expectations and rules
    • reward/recognition program
    • lessons for teaching expected behavior
    Ultimately, our goal is to stop undesirable behavior by:
    • replacing with a new behavior or skill
    • altering environments
    • teaching appropriate skills
    • rewarding appropriate behavior
