This section of the website is dedicated to those individuals who
are interested in learning more about School-wide Positive Behavior
Support. Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) when
applied at the School-wide level is frequently called: SWPBS or
Sw-PBIS. For the remainder of this article SWPBS will be used when
referring to School-wide Positive Behavior Support. SWPBS refers to
a systems change process for an entire school or district. The
underlying theme is teaching behavioral expectations in the same
manner as any core curriculum subject. Typically, a team of
approximately ten representative members of the school will attend
a two or three day training provided by skilled trainers. This team
will be comprised of administrators, classified, and regular and
special education teachers. The school will focus on three to five
behavioral expectations that are positively stated and easy to
remember. In other words, rather than telling students what not to
do, the school will focus on the preferred behaviors.
