Seven schools honored for Positive Behavior programs
Five Neshaminy schools schools earned banners for their School Wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (SWPBIS) programs after a recent series of outside evaluations by a team of educators. The programs, which are customized for each school, promote empathy, responsibility, respect and other core character traits through a variety of activities throughout the year and as part of the daily routine. The banners indicate that the school has implemented the program with fidelity. Neshaminy has the most banners of any district in Bucks County.
Congratulations to the SWPBIS teams at Ferderbar ES, Buck ES, Hoover ES, Miller ES and Poquessing MS who earned banners for the first time. Sandburg MS and Schweitzer ES added badges for sustained fidelity to add to their banners earned in previous years. Maple Point and Tawanka are also launching their own programs this year. The banners and badges were presented at an SWPBIS forum held in Hershey in May.
At that conference, Neshaminy’s team shared their experience in a forum, Creating Student, Staff, and Community Buy-In to a sell-out crowd of over 400 attendees on May 16. Congratulations to the Core PBIS team members from Sandburg and Schweitzer for bringing outstanding recognition to our District!
Conference attendees also attended numerous breakout sessions on PBIS best practices from participating school districts throughout the state. They will share these best practice ideas with the Neshaminy PBIS teams during workshops on June 19 and 20, looking forward to implementing new best practices for the coming school year.
