In our 15th year in operation, Piney Grove Middle School is now a Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) school. PBIS is an evidence-based framework that helps create an effective learning environment by making data-driven decisions that impact school culture and behavioral supports.


    Some of the things we have implemented so far include:

    • Positively stated behavior expectations for the whole school (communicated through the acronym GRIT)
    • A behavior intervention plan for responding to behavior errors
    • A schoolwide acknowledgement system to recognize and reinforce positive behaviors (GRIT Coin)
    • GRIT Students and Staff Member of the Week
