More punishment won’t improve student behaviour. 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 behaviour, rather than punishing inappropriate behaviour, 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 key to the PBIS Champion Model System is practicality: It works for teachers, administrators, and school staff in all settings. The model has proven to reduce referrals, suspensions, and expulsions. It is a multi-tiered system with layered levels of support designed to teach behaviour similar to how academics are taught in every setting. The examples in this book are real and highlight elementary, middle, high school, and alternative education schools that have implemented this model and witnessed significant changes in their school culture and discipline data.
