Missouri Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support (MO SW-PBS) is the largest statewide program focused on schoolwide positive behavior support with more than 800 participating schools in 220 districts across Missouri. MO SW-PBS is supported through an active partnership with the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) and the University of Missouri Center for SW-PBS.
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. SW-PBS methods are research-based, proven to significantly reduce the occurrence of problem behaviors in schools and supported by a three-tiered model.
