Abstract

School-wide positive behavior support (SWPBS) is an empirically based prevention and intervention program framework utilized in schools to support appropriate behaviors and to create and promote a positive environment. This case study analyses student behavior pre- and post- implementation of SWPBS in an alternative education (AE) setting for students with behavior disorders. The objective of a well-implemented SWPBS program in a school is to provide necessary behavioral supports for all students to be successful academically and socially. This descriptive case study examined if there is a correlational effect of SWPBS on decreasing aggression and teacher consequences while increasing appropriate behaviors. Visual analysis was used to determine trends of student behaviors. In addition to the information obtained by student behavior data, the School-Wide Evaluation Tool (SET) was utilized to determine the integrity of the implementation of SWPBS. In 2011, SWPBS was implemented in the AE school setting. Data was obtained from the previous school year as a baseline and for the following two school years. The student data ndicated a decreasing trend post implementation in the use of safety seat as teacher punishment. Consistent trends were not seen with the other behaviors or teacher consequences. Further research is recommended to examine other factors that may have affected the data.

School-wide positive behavior support (SWPBS) is an empirically based prevention and intervention program framework utilized in schools to support appropriate behaviors and to create and promote a positive environment. This case study analyses student behavior pre- and post- implementation of SWPBS in an alternative education (AE) setting for students with behavior disorders. The objective of a well-implemented SWPBS program in a school is to provide necessary behavioral supports for all students to be successful academically and socially. This descriptive case study examined if there is a correlational effect of SWPBS on decreasing aggression and teacher consequences while increasing appropriate behaviors. Visual analysis was used to determine trends of student behaviors.
