McCurdy, Merilee; Skinner, Christopher; McClurg, Virginia; Whitsitt, Lynnette; Moore, Tara – Preventing School Failure, 2020
Teachers regularly apply independent group-oriented contingencies (e.g., each student who scored above 89% gets a reward) which are designed to enhance students' academic performance and achievement. In some instances, these contingencies are ineffective with low performing students. Numerous researchers have demonstrated that applying…

Haley, Keri; Allsopp, David – Preventing School Failure, 2019
Parents and educators are expected under IDEIA to work together on educational decision-making for students with disabilities. While collegial relationships in this process are intended, partnerships are not always formed because both parties can struggle to understand each other's perspective. Parents may hold their view, while educators may have…

The use of a tiered approach provides a structured format for increasing consistency across educators to address the diversity of student needs within a school. The same logic of providing a tiered continuum of evidence-based increasingly intensive supports that is characteristic of schoolwide multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) can be adapted…

Results indicated that, on…

Chitiyo, Jonathan; May, Michael E. – Preventing School Failure, 2018
The Schoolwide Positive Behavior Intervention Support model (SWPBIS) continues to gain widespread use across schools in the United States and abroad. Despite its widespread implementation, little research has examined factors that influence its sustainability. Informed by Rogers's diffusion theory, this study examined school personnel's…

Stocker, James D., Jr.; Kubina, Richard M., Jr. – Preventing School Failure, 2017
Fluency, a combination of response accuracy and speed, enables students to work efficiently through academic tasks. Students with disabilities and math deficits often struggle to learn math facts fluently. Although issues with fluency frequently coexist with a disability, problems gaining fluency also stem from a lack of practice and appropriate…

Howland, Allison; Chen, Li-Ting; Chen, Ming-E; Min, Mina – Preventing School Failure, 2017
Homeless children usually experience high mobility. Yet, it is not clear if the degree of mobility among homeless children is associated with their academic performance. Furthermore, an emerging body of literature is beginning to examine the impact of specific living arrangements (e.g., living with families or friends) on homeless family and child…

Mallett, Christopher A. – Preventing School Failure, 2016
The zero tolerance policy movement across most of this country's school districts significantly limited school personnel's disciplinary alternatives for students who break rules on campus.

Feuerborn, Laura L.; Tyre, Ashli D. – Preventing School Failure, 2016
Schoolwide Positive Behavior Support (SWPBS) offers an alternative to reactive and exclusionary school discipline practices. However, the shift to SWPBS requires substantial change in the practices of staff, and many leadership teams struggle to rally staff support for implementation. With a more thorough understanding of staff perceptions, level…
