Be Respectful - Be Responsible - Be Safe
Braymer C-4 School Schoolwide Positive Behavior Supports (SW-PBS)
SW-PBS is a process for creating safer and more effective schools by structuring the learning environment to support the academic and social success of all students. The process supports the adoption and long-term implementation of efficient and effective discipline throughout the school environment. SW-PBS methods are researched-based, proven to significantly reduce the occurrence of problem behaviors in schools, and supported by a three-tiered model.
Tier 1 (Universal) supports focus on preventing the development of new incidents/ occurrences of problem behaviors by implementing high quality learning environments for all students and staff and across all settings (i.e., schoolwide, classroom, and non-classroom).
Tier 2 (Targeted) supports focus on reducing the frequency and intensity of incidents of problem behaviors for students who are not responsive to primary intervention practices by providing more focused, intensive, and frequent small group-oriented responses in situations where problem behavior is likely.
Tier 3 (Intensive) supports focus on reducing the intensity, frequency, and/or complexity of existing problem behaviors that are resistant to and/or unlikely to be addressed by primary and secondary prevention efforts by providing most individualized responses to situations where problem behavior is likely.
