Whatis School-wide Positive Behavior Support?
  • SWPBS is a framework for school improvement. . . .

SW Positive Behavior Supports…

  • Emphasizes the use of preventative, teaching, and reinforcement-based strategies to achieve meaningful and durable behavior and lifestyle outcomes

why implement swpbs
Why Implement SWPBS?

Over 9000 schools across the country are implementing SWPBS because…

  • It can be adapted to fit your particular school
  • It can coexist with most other school-wide programs (bully prevention, character ed, etc.)
  • It is a Research-based Practice that is consistent with principles of behavior
  • Schools implementing SWPBS with fidelity report:
    • 20-60% reductions in office discipline referrals
    • Improved faculty/staff satisfaction
    • Improved administrator perceptions of school safety

The 7 Components of SWPBS:

  • Leadership team
  • Behavior purpose statement
  • Set of positive expectations & behaviors
  • Procedures for teaching SW & classroom-wide expected behavior
  • Continuum of procedures for encouraging expected behavior
  • Continuum of procedures for discouraging rule violations
  • Procedures for on-going data-based monitoring & evaluation

Levels of PBSAdapted from Levels and Descriptions of Behavior Support(George, Harrower, & Knoster, 2003)
  • School-wide/Universal (Tier 1) – intended for all students and staff in all settings across campus
  • Classroom – school-wide expectations for student behavior coupled with pre-planned strategies for classroom settings
  • Targeted Group (Tier 2) – addresses behavioral issues of groups of students who have been unresponsive to Universal efforts (having similar problem behaviors that seem to occur for the same reasons (i.e. attention seeking, escape)
  • Intensive, Individual (Tier 3)– to address problematic behaviors of individual students, to help them meet school-wide expectations of student behavior coupled with team-based strategies

  • SWPBS requires a 3-5 year commitment to develop and implement a program with fidelity.
  • This year is focused on planning Universal Interventions (Tier 1).
  • Next school year the focus in on implementation of Tier 1 with fidelity.

Your SWPBS Team . . .

  • Approx. 6-8 participants form the PBS team
  • Representative of all faculty on campus
  • At least one administrator serves on the team
  • The team members will assist our school in implementing and maintaining SW efforts
  • The team will share plans with the staff and ask for staff input on SWPBS efforts



  • Assess the current behavior management practices
  • Examine patterns of behavior
  • Obtain staff commitment
  • Develop a school-wide plan
  • Obtain parental participation and input
  • Oversee, monitor, and evaluate all plan objectives, procedures and activities

What will SWPBS look like in your school?

  • Data will be reviewed monthly to track progress and identify areas to target for intervention
    • Office Disciplinary Referrals (summarized by time, location, offense, student, & avg. per day per month)
    • Attendance, Suspension, Detention, Grades…
  • Discipline referral Processes & Procedures will be Consistent throughout the school
  • The school will develop and use school-wide Expectations/Rules in settings across campus to Teach students appropriate behavior
  • A Reward System will be used to encourage and model appropriate behavior
  • Effective Consequences will be developed and used to discourage inappropriate behavior.
