Abstract

One correctional alternative to punitive consequences is School Wide Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports. The program’s effects on behavior, achievement, and social behavior of students in a juvenile corrections facility were examined. There was a significant difference in the number of problem behavioral referrals between the pre (n = 130, M = 4.28) and post periods (n = 98, M = 3.23, p =.05, d=.27, small effect size). Themes from a focus group of school personnel (N=6): an improvement of classroom management skills by teachers, inconsistent application of positive behavioral supports, and a lack of administration support for the program.
