NEW FOR 2019-2020:

Beginning in the 2019-2020 school year, and in cooperation with the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, MO SW-PBS will shift support from individual school buildings to districtwide SW-PBS support. This shift represents the recognition that district level capacity and support are critical for sustained implementation of SW-PBS.

  • Participation in districtwide SW-PBS will be invitation only.
  • Individual schools that have partnered with MO SW-PBS up to and including the 2018-2019 school year will continue with their current training plan, and will be charged recovery costs, only, by the regional professional development center with which they partner.

Why Participate in MO SW-PBS

  1. Schoolwide Positive Behavior  Support is meets What Works Clearinghouse Criteria as an evidence-based practice that, when implemented with fidelity, has proven to reduce  problem behaviors while increasing prosocial behaviors
  2. Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support is a framework for creating safe and orderly learning  environments where all students can be academically and  socially successful
  3. Schoolwide  Positive Behavior Support is a multi-tiered system of support framework that promotes early identification and intervention for students needing additional behavioral supports, thereby providing students with a  safety net
  4. Schoolwide  Positive  Behavior  Support assists schools in promoting the soft skills students need to be successful in life
