SW-PBS is a process for creating safer and more effective schools by structuring the learning environment to support the academic and social success of all students. The process supports the adoption and long-term implementation of efficient and effective discipline throughout the school environment. PBS methods are research-based and proven to significantly reduce the occurrence of problem behaviors in schools. The primary goals of SW-PBS are to prevent the development of inappropriate behavior, reduce ongoing patterns of problem behavior, and to increase the likelihood of improved academic performance of all students through teaching and learning time gained when the numbers of inappropriate behaviors are reduced. As staffs learn how to consistently embed the teaching and monitoring of appropriate social and behavior skills into the school day and curriculum, they also learn to anticipate how to structure school environments so that the appropriate skills will be utilized more often. It is important that schools actively communicate with families so that they understand and support the SW-PBS process. Families can also benefit from learning how to use similar strategies for teaching and supporting their children's appropriate social and behavior skills.

Lunch will be provided.

Structure Your Environment for Success:
Dealing with non-compliant students on a daily basis can be one of the most discouraging parts of teaching. Many times adults feel like they have lost all control with their children and may even feel embarrassed about the ways they have tried to get this control back. A mistake that is made by many adults is that this is a quick and simple process. There is no shortcut or straight road that one can travel down quickly to achieve this. The first step is to learn about what you are up against.
This workshop is presented by Paul Gasser MS/LMFT.
