SW-PBS schools identify 3-5 broad expectations and define these expectations with specific behaviors in schoolwide, non-classroom, and classroom settings. This helps to provide staff with a common and consistent language. More importantly, by identifying what students must do to meet these behavior expectations, clarifying expected behaviors provides consistency and predictability in all school settings.
The resources on this page are intended to supplement MO SW-PBS regional Tier 1 training.
- Select three to five schoolwide expectations that define success for all students and are applicable in all settings (e.g., respectful, cooperative, safe, kind).
- Create a matrix of specific behaviors/rules to further clarify each schoolwide expectation for every setting.
- Determine procedures for each of the school’s non-classroom settings (e.g., arrival / departure, hallways, cafeteria, recess, restrooms, assemblies, etc.).
- Ensure teachers have clarified behaviors/rules and procedures (e.g., arrival, small group, independent seatwork, etc.) to identify success in their classrooms that align with schoolwide expectations.
