Eastlake Middle School is excited to announce that we will begin a new program at Eastlake Middle School under the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) framework. Through this program we hope to teach and reward students who show “RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY and who are READY TO LEARN.”. 


The PBIS Program is a school-wide program that is designed to improve the overall academics and behavior of the school environment; therefore improving the success of all students. The purpose of the program is to promote positive success within the school environment and to reward students who do well both academically and behaviorally.  As a part of the program, when students demonstrate the target behaviors, they are to be rewarded with “Laker Bucks” for doing so (using the criteria below as a guide).  Students will have the opportunity to spend their “Laker Bucks” at the appropriate venue to purchase incentives.

Child Find is an activity conducted by state and local education agencies to locate children ages' birth to 21 that have disabilities. The purpose of the program is to provide special education and related services that are needed. Disabilities may include developmental delays in communication skills, motor skills, or social emotional/behavior functioning. A student is considered disabled if they have one or more of the following conditions: autism, deaf-blindness, hearing impairment, brain injury, learning disabilities, emotional disturbance, or a speech or language impairment. If you know of any child who has or may have special needs, please contact Mrs. Eileen Bowers, Office of Pupil Services, Willoughby-Eastlake City School District at 440 975-3800. Once notified, the school district will contact the parent/guardian to find out if the child needs to be evaluated. The evaluation will be provided free of charge and if eligible, the child will receive appropriate special education and related services.
