Five Pasco schools recognized as positive behavior support models

Pasco County, Florida -- Three Pasco County public schools earned gold and two earned bronze in the state 2012-2013 Positive Behavior Support: Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (PBS:MTSS) Model School program.

Crews Lake Middle (now K-8), Cypress Elementary, and Sunray Elementary schools were recognized as gold level winners. Gulfside and Schrader elementary schools earned bronze level awards.  Crews Lake previously earned the gold award.

The schools have met specific criteria and reported innovative, creative, and functional ways of supporting PBS:MTSS. Specific characteristics of PBS:MTSS Model Schools are their consistent methods of: (1) utilizing their data to better serve the students and staff, (2) teaching PBS:MTSS to new students throughout the school year, (3) creative and engaging reward systems, (4) extending PBS:MTSS throughout the campus and partnering with the community and parents, and (5) including PBS:MTSS into daily activities across all available teaching opportunities. PBS:MTSS Model Schools have made a commitment to both PBS:MTSS and to their schools and it shows!

Florida’s Positive Behavior Support Project recognizes model schools at the bronze, silver, and gold levels.  Schools may choose to apply for any level award. Each model school will receive a certificate and recognition on Florida’s Positive Behavior Support Project web site.  New model schools also will receive a banner to display their award status, and returning model schools will receive a sticker to add to their existing banner.
