SWPBS is a team-based proactive systems approach for creating and maintaining safe and effective learning environments evidenced by positive social cultures and behavioral supports for all students.  

The focus of SWPBS is schools developing, implementing, evaluating, and sustaining a three-tier model of teaching and prevention that includes primary preventions, secondary preventions, and tertiary interventions.  

Critical elements of SWPBS include

               (a)  achievement of valued and desired outcomes
               (b)  adoption and sustained use of research-validated practices
                  and curricula that
 maximize achievement of student and 
                  teacher outcomes

                (c)  team-based application of data-based decision making at 
                  many levels
         
(d)  development of systems (e.g., processes, routines, working 
                  structures, 
administrative supports) to sustain achievement
                  of valued and desired outcomes
