School-wide Positive Behavior Plan: Middle School Example

The above link will bring you to the Successful Schools’ website page that contains a link to a middle school SW-PBIS example plan. Krueger Middle School in Michigan City, IN has improved their school-wide behavior plan by moving from a reactive disciplinary system that relied primarily on punishment to a proactive approach that incorporates the principles of Positive Behavioral Supports. The system of School-Wide Positive Behavior Supports has increased their capacity to reduce school disruptions, and educate all students including those with problem behaviors through the following:

• Clearly defined outcomes
• Research-validated practices
• Supportive administrative systems
• Use of information for problem solving.

The example includes a copy of their school-wide handbook, the definitions of their behavioral expectations (also call their behavioral matrix), and quiz they have administered to their staff to test how well they know their school-wide behavior plan.

 

School-wide Positive Behavior Plan: High School Example

The above link will bring you to the Successful Schools’ website page that contains a link to a high school SW-PBIS example plan. The main focus of discipline at George Washington High School (GWHS) is to provide a clear system for teaching all expected behaviors. While many faculty and students may have assumptions of what is expected behavior, we cannot assume that everyone’s beliefs are similar. Through SW-PBS, we work to create and maintain a productive, safe environment in which ALL school community members have clear expectations and understandings of their role in the educational process.
