Clippard Elementary receives state award
Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support (SW-PBS) is a systematic approach to creating safer and more effective schools, and Clippard Elementary demonstrated their mastery of the program during the SW-PBS Summer Institute at Tan-Tar-A.
SW-PBS is an initiative of the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Pictured above after receiving the Bronze Award are members of the SW-PBS initiative at Clippard. From the left are Dr. Sydney Herbst, principal; Sue Cook, counselor; Terri Bryan, SPED teacher and team coach; Amy Emmenderfer, literacy specialist; Jill Uhrhan, 4th grade teacher; Stephanie Wessell, 2nd grade teacher; Chris Lacy, kindergarten teacher and team coach; and Dawn Smith, 1st grade teacher.
SW-PBS focuses on three areas: encouraging positive student behavior; preventing disruptive behavior; and tailoring academic strategies to individual student needs. The procedure provides a framework to develop a culture and climate more likely to increase positive social and behavioral skills for students. SW-PBS decreases the likelihood of inappropriate behavioral incidents by providing effective interventions.
