Positive Behavior Support Project

Since 2003, Miami-Dade County Public Schools district became one of the many school districts across the state of Florida to implement School-Wide Positive Behavior Support. SWPBS, a program model, is currently being implemented in selected schools throughout the district. The program includes a strong training and technical support component from Florida’s Positive Behavior Support: Multi-Tiered Support System. The philosophy of Positive Behavior Support centers upon principles of positive reinforcement, instruction of appropriate social behaviors, and modification on a macro-system wide level encompassing all students and staff. Behavior is analyzed with the use of data analysis. Interventions are strategically implemented in order to improve school climate, overall student behavior, increase test scores, and reduce referrals and suspension rates.
