Welcome Back!

Farragut Middle School is continuing an important the initiative called Positive Behavior in School (PBIS).  As you are aware, PBIS is a process for creating a safer and more effective school.  It is a systems approach to enhancing the capacity of schools to educate all students by developing research-based, school-wide, and classroom behavior support systems.  The process focuses on improving a school's ability to teach and support positive behavior for all students.  Rather than a prescribed program, PBIS provides systems for schools to design, implement, and evaluate effective school-wide, classroom, non-classroom, and student specific plans.  PBIS includes school-wide procedures and processes intended for all students and all staff in all settings.  PBIS is not a program or a curriculum.  It is a team-based process for systemic problem solving, planning, and evaluation.  It is an approach to creating a safe and productive learning environment where teachers can teach and all students can learn.

Please take some time to review the resources below.  We look forward to working with you to establish a safe and positive school environment for all our students!
