Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support (SW-PBS)

How can your school participate in the Missouri SW-PBS Network?

There is a formal application process for schools interested in beginning the Schoolwide PBS journey in the 2012-2013 school year.

Step 1: Attend Administrator Overview of Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support at the Central RPDC in Warrensburg. If you are unable to attend you may or arrange an overview of SW-PBS at your school building.

After the overview of SW-PBS, the Missouri SW-PBS Network application packet will be explained and given to administrators.

Step 2: The local Regional SW-PBS Consultants will schedule a time to come to the individual school(s) to provide staff with an overview of Schoolwide PBS. This will allow staff an opportunity to learn about the benefits of SW-PBS and for the administrator to later determine if there is 80% buy-in at the staff level.

Step 3: Interested schools will need to complete the required activities and documents in the application and submit to local RPDC Consultant..
