Butler Area School District students and staff have been working hard to display positive behavior in school and their efforts show!

This year, many of our schools have been recognized for implementing School-Wide (SW PBIS) or Program-Wide (PW PBIS) Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports with fidelity at the Tier 1, 2 and/or 3 level during the 2021-2022 school year. 

Butler Area School District students and staff have been working hard to display positive behavior in school and their efforts show!

This year, many of our schools have been recognized for implementing School-Wide (SW PBIS) or Program-Wide (PW PBIS) Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports with fidelity at the Tier 1, 2 and/or 3 level during the 2021-2022 school year. 

“Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports is an evidence-based, cost-effective, systems approach for establishing the social culture needed for schools to be effective learning environments for all students. Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports eliminates barriers to learning, creates and maintains a safe and effective learning environment in schools, and ensures that all students have the social and emotional skills needed to succeed in school and beyond. Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports helps schools teach students expected behaviors and social skills, creates student behavioral health and academic support systems, and applies data-based decision-making to discipline, academics, and social/emotional learning. Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports uses the three-tiered approach of universal interventions (for all students and settings), secondary interventions (for students who are at-risk), and tertiary interventions (for individual students needing specialized assistance).” (papbs.org)
