School-wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports is a systematic, proactive, preventive, research-based approach that has shown to reduce student misbehavior when implemented with fidelity. The study focused on the Primary Prevention Tier of SWPBIS to prevent and reduce student misbehavior. The study attempted to answer the question is School-wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports an effective model to significantly decrease the number of office discipline referrals, In School and Out of School Suspensions assignments, and student tardy referrals.
