Success Stories

As schools across Wisconsin launch PBIS initiatives, students, teachers, administrators and families are beginning to see exciting results.

  • One school's efforts to improve overall behavior helped them identify "hot spots" in their school.  Extra attention from staff led to a 21% reduction in suspensions. 
  • Students at another school impressed the community's police chief with their clear understanding of the school's expectations for behavior.
  • A giant signed bus poster tells the story at another school, where bus behavior improved dramatically through a unified effort involving teachers, school staff, bus drivers and students.
