Harness the proactive power of PBIS to improve student behavior
More punishment won’t improve student behavior. Now, there’s a better way: The Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Champion Model. Through this breakthrough alternative, schools have reduced disciplinary incidences by 50% or more by implementing proactive, school-wide prevention practices.
This research-based, action-oriented framework written by leading experts in PBIS implementation, will show you how to create a school culture where all students achieve both social and academic success. You’ll find:
- A convincing case for why teaching appropriate behavior, rather than punishing inappropriate behavior, is more effective for creating an environment conducive to learning
- A step-by-step framework for implementing a comprehensive systems approach, with specific actions to develop, monitor, and sustain each level of the system
- Success stories from teachers and administrators who have implemented the PBIS Champion Model
- Self-assessment exercises to ensure PBIS implementation starts on the right track and stays there
Through this approach, you’ll have the tools to create a school environment that accelerates learning and has a positive impact on the emotional, social, academic, and physical well-being of every child.

"The best approach to student discipline is a proactive approach. The more energy a new leader invests in developing systems that support the communication of school expectations, the fewer behavioral interruptions will occur during a typical school day. The fewer disruptions, the less instructional time is wasted, giving students more time to engage in learning and more opportunities to grow."
