The Sisseton Middle School (Sisseton School District 54-2) was one of the first pilot sites in the state of South Dakota for the implementation of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) in 2007-08. Sisseton Middle School represents rural schools with a diverse population in the state of South Dakota as well as across the country. As a South Dakota PBIS site, the objective of this research is to determine if the Sisseton Middle School has proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting students' behaviors that create a positive school climate. Data used in this research was obtained from the Sisseton Middle School in the following ways: 1) PBIS data entries; 2) focus group interviews; and 3) interviews with the middle school principal; 4) school newsletter; and 5) school board report.
