            Action plan for 2014-2015

Delta Middle School is currently developing its Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS).  Bully prevention is part of this new system.  PBIS is a system that develops, explains and teaches all students the expectations for behavior in the different school settings (classroom, hallway, cafeteria, etc.).  Part of the program is to positively recognize the students that demonstrate those desired behaviors.  This will be in the form of weekly, quarterly and year-end incentives.  We are currently utilizes some of those positive recognition programs and the students and staff are responding very well to it.  We look forward to a complete roll out of PBIS to start the 2015-2016 school year.
