S.W.A.T. (Stop. Walk and Talk) is the universal system for addressing conflict management among students in our district. This strategy is part of our PBIS philosopy of teaching behavior expectations. It works hand in had with our 3 universal rules: Be Respectful Be Responsible, and Be Safe.
S.W.A.T. is introduced to students early in the year and reviewed through the school year. Posters outlining S.W.A.T. steps are hung in each classroom and reviewed by the classroom teacher.
By using S.W.A.T., the staff will teach all students what to do when they encounter behavior that is not respectful or safe. The three prongs are: What to do if someone is not being respectful to you. What to do if you encounter someone not being respectful to someone else. And what to do if someone tells you that you are not being respectful.
