In the face of dwindling financial resources, educational leaders are looking to refine resource allocation while maintaining a focus on improved student outcomes. This article presents initial findings from a professional development state initiative called Effective Behavioral and Instructional Support Systems (EBISS). The EBISS initiative aims to teach practicing educators about two evidence-based systems of practice and how to blend those practices for more efficient and effective school systems. The targeted systems are School-Wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports and School-Wide Reading Model. Descriptive statistics from 140 participating elementary schools suggest there was an increase in (a) the administration of behavior and literacy screening tools, (b) the number of teams examining and analyzing these data, and (c) the implementation scores and student outcomes at selected grade levels. Continued exploration of data-based collaboration in school buildings appears warranted. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
