Pearl Buck Elementary SWPBIS program
Elementary and middle schools in the Neshaminy School District implement the School-Wide Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (SWPBIS) approach to managing student behavior. Children will be specifically taught expected behaviors in a variety of areas throughout our school. The overarching themes of the PBIS approach was introduced to all Pearl S. Buck students at the beginning of the 2015-2016 school year.
The focus of PBIS is on teaching behavior in much the same manner we teach academics – with a specific learning objective, practice and reinforcement/re-teaching. However, PBIS does NOT eliminate consequences. Traditional responses up to and including suspension are still possible. However, if a child should demonstrate inappropriate behavior, the initial approach from staff will be to re-teach expected behaviors. Please also refer to School Board Policy 218 above for further information.
