  • Ferderbar earns a SWPBIS banner! 

    Congratulations to our School Wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (SWPBIS) team! SWPBIS is teaching behavioral expectations in the same manner as any core curriculum subject. The Ferderbar program was evaluated to determine if use of SWPBIS procedures is related to valued change in the safety, social culture, and violent behavior in schools. Ferderbar passed with flying colors. The team will be recognized this spring in Hershey at the annual State conference on SWPBIS.
