The Positive Interventions in Education (PIE) program is designed as an alternative for Manatee County students who have been suspended out of school as a consequence for certain violations of the district Code of Student Conduct. The program provides supervision in a structured environment, along with behavioral and academic assistance for a period of one to ten days. During PIE, students will have the opportunity to complete regularly assigned school work, receive academic assistance from a certified teacher, and complete behavioral reflection activities designed to assist students with problem behaviors that may have resulted in their Out of School Suspension. Students are primarily responsible for obtaining all academic assignments from their teachers and submitting them upon return to their zoned school. PIE is available on a first come-first serve basis with a daily program capacity of 30 students. Students who attend PIE will be counted in full attendance at their zoned school for each successful day completed.
