This thesis examines whether or not a newly implemented Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) system is working in a middle school during its first year. The school used for this study is a middle school that serves students from fifth to eighth grade. The research conducted looked into the positive and negative thoughts staff and students had in regards to the PBIS system. During the school year, teachers who worked at the school for more than two years were surveyed on their viewpoints of the effectiveness of the PBIS system. Students in fifth grade were also given a survey to gain an understanding of their viewpoints on how the system is working in the school. Observations and personal interviews with teachers and students were also conducted to discuss their thoughts on the PBIS system and how they believe it has worked in its first year. The results from the surveys showed that the staff and students in the school felt that the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports system did not work in its first year.
