PBIS Staff Goals
Grant Middle School will provide a positive, safe, healthy, nurturing and respectful environment in which all students have the opportunity to progress academically and to become productive members of society. PBIS aims to decrease behavioral infractions showing year-over-year improvement. PBIS assists towards this end as it is based upon the concept of teaching behaviors that will prevent noncompliance. We will provide this through the implementation of PBIS, which promotes the following:
Development of clearly defined and consistent student expectations and accountabilities which reflect GMS’s themes;
Grant students are:
Communication and collaboration between administration, staff, families and community.
Maintenance of an open ended flexible approach through the use of a data driven informational system.
Educationally sound methods that foster student character, safety, academic excellence and individual citizenship.
