School-Wide Positive Behavior Support

What is SW-PBS?

Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support (SW-PBS) is a framework for creating safe and orderly learning environments in schools, while improving the social-emotional outcomes for students. It is a proactive approach that relies on research-based practices, including developing clear behavioral expectations, teaching these expectations, acknowledging appropriate behavior, consistently correcting inappropriate behavior, and using behavioral data to systematically solve problems. SW-PBS is build on a three-tiered model that provides additional behavioral supports to students who are not responding to the tier 1 interventions.

What are the benefits of SW-PBS?

Schools that consistently implement and use SW-PBS have:

  • Improved school climate
  • Improved student achievement
  • Reduced in-suspension and referral rates
