Positive Behavior Supports: Tier 2 Interventions in Middle Schools
Hoyle, Carol G.; Marshall, Kathleen J.; Yell, Mitchell L.
Preventing School Failure, v55 n3 p164-170 2011
School personnel are using Schoolwide Positive Behavior Supports in public schools throughout the United States. A number of studies have evaluated the universal level, or Tier 1, of Schoolwide Positive Behavior Supports. In this study, the authors describe and analyze the interventions offered as options for use for Tier 2 in middle schools reported by a nationwide sample of Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support contacts. They also examine the methods used to evaluate the success of those interventions. They used a short survey for gathering the responses. The results suggest that although school personnel attempt to implement a variety of interventions, they continue to need assistance in identifying the best interventions for this level. Researchers need to conduct studies to find methods for evaluating the implementation of Tier 2 interventions. (Contains 1 figure and 3 tables.)
