Getting Started

First Steps

  1. Attend a SW-PBS overview held by a Regional Professional Development Center
  2. Secure school and district administrator agreement.
  3. Secure commitment & agreement to implement from at least 80% of staff.
  4. Establish a SW-PBS leadership team at your school.
  5. Conduct an assessment of the current schoolwide discipline system.
  6. Submit a completed New School Application to your regional consultant

What Next?

Once a school or district has made the commitment to implement SW-PBS, teams are trained through a series of state and regional workshops. Team members who are trained are expected to lead staff in the creation of the SW-PBS systems at the school, and to build capacity among staff members to implement SW-PBS with fidelity. 

Typically a school will use the first year to participate in training, review current school processes, and prepare for full-scale implementation the following school year. In succeeding years additional training will be provided to assist schools’ progress and to provide technical support.
