Exemplar Schools | Missouri Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support

Exemplar Schools


The purpose of the MO SW-PBS school recognitions is two-fold.  First, reviewing the criteria affords schools and districts the opportunity to accurately self-reflect on their progress implementing and sustaining SW-PBS.  Second, it affords the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education an opportunity to recognize those schools that have met the criteria in appreciation of their progress.
The bar is purposefully set high for a school to achieve any one of these criteria. Typically, it is a two to four year process for a school to achieve bronze, a three to six year process to achieve silver, and a five to eight year process to achieve gold. The number of years it takes to achieve each is lengthy because it involves true systems change, sustaining that change each year, and implementing processes to support students and staff across multiple indicators at all three tiers of prevention and intervention.  Some of the state’s most successful schools have taken a year to prepare and plan with their staff before implementing directly with students.
