    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.
