Safety, Relationships, & Predictability are Paramount.
Introduction to SWPBIS
PBIS is an Implementation framework for maximizing the selection and use of evidence-based prevention and intervention practices along a multi-tiered continuum that supports the academic, social, emotional, and behavioral competence of all students.
Classroom Practices! Woo!
PBIS, MTSS, and RTI are organizational frameworks that support educators to use high leverage classroom practices, to create a positive, predictable learning environment.
High leverage classroom practices are relational and instructional and have been proven to support ALL learners. They are explicitly listed in Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA), as well as other federal guidance for schools, particularly guidance related to discipline. You will also find these practices are also included in teacher/administrator evaluation programs in various states.
The reason these practices are referred to in so many federal, state, and district guidelines is that they are THE most powerful set of strategies we can use to the stage for student and educator success. They allow for maximum prevention of academic and social needs, as well as provide a template for response to the most intense, individualized support plans.

Tier 1 are universal or primary approaches that are preventative in nature
Tier 2: Group-Based Intervention (Some)
Tier 2, targeted, group-based interventions are designed to serve students who have not responded to Tier 1 interventions.
Tier 3: Intensive, Individualized Prevention (Few)
At Tier 3, these students receive more intensive, individualized support to improve their behavioral and academic outcomes.
Ditch the Clip! Why Clip Charts Are Not a PBIS Practice
Instead of assuming students know what to do, we can define, teach, and practice what we want to see, which is the most effective approach for improving behavior
