A major goal of SW-PBS is to create consistent, predictable environments across all school settings. For this to happen, staff must have a common philosophy and  approach to student discipline. The resources on  this page are designed to assist teams in  building the capacity of staff to implement the practices of SW-PBS, in  order to create such a consistent and predictable learning environment for students.
