33 Schools Recognized for Positive Behavior

December 2019

Positive behavior is key to a strong learning environment, and 33 Palm Beach County Schools have been recognized by the Florida Positive Behavior Interventions & Support (FLPBIS) Project as Bronze, Silver or Gold Model Schools.


PBIS utilizes “a range of research-based strategies used to increase the quality of life and decrease problem behavior by teaching new skills and making changes in a person's environment,” according to the FLPBIS website.

Teachers are trained to use those strategies to ensure student achievement while preventing behavioral problems while also using positive incentives and relevant consequences. These practices are beneficial to the social/emotional learning of students as well as overall wellness and mental health.

In order to achieve the Model School distinction, schools showed implementation and fidelity of the PBIS strategies and demonstrate equitable outcomes for all students. The following Palm Beach County District Schools earned the Model schools designation:
