Developing and Implementing a system of School-Wide Positive Behavior Support (SWPBS) allows a school to set the stage for success. Their are eight major components of SWPBS.
Rubric of Implementation
The Rubric of Implementation is used to evaluate the implementation of the Discipline Foundation Policy: School-Wide Positive Behavior Support. This online training will provide: 1) an overview of the entire Rubric of Implementation, 2) information about and examples of each key feature of School-Wide Positive Behavior Support and 3) examples of scoring procedures. Analyzing the results of the Rubric of Implementation will support the team in assessing implementation of each key feature, evaluate and strengthen on-going efforts, revise and/or design procedures as needed and compare implementation from year to year. This can guide the improvement of problem behavior prevention, the use of corrective procedures and, ultimately, reduce suspension and improve student achievement.
