2. Leadership

Component Purpose: 

Successful school improvement efforts share one commonality–strong leadership.
Maintaining a well-disciplined school is one of the primary roles of the building administrator. As the
principal goes, so goes the time, focus, resources, and attention to any given school improvement effort.
Furthermore, schools rely on  strong, shared leadership to drive the development and implementation of the systems and practices necessary to support appropriate student behavior. MO SW-PBS schools depend on a supportive administrator, a strong leadership team, and at least 80% staff support and active engagement to successfully implement SW-PBS.

The resources on this page are intended to supplement MO SW-PBS regional Tier 1 training. 

Component Outcomes: 

  • Understand the vital role of administrative leadership in your discipline efforts.
  • Establish a viable SW-PBS Leadership Team that is representative of staff and with the skills and group processes to ensure your team’s productivity.
  • Use effective action planning to guide and monitor development tasks.
  • Develop strategies to ensure full staff engagement and consensus building as you develop your schoolwide plan.
  • Assess important conditions for lasting change relative to your school, and make plans to address key issues so as to ensure success.
