Is your school implementing effective PBIS practices?

Use the SAPR-PBIS™ self-assessment to pinpoint what is working

SAPR PBIS logoSchools can evaluate for themselves how effective their positive behavior program is working with the Self-Assessment and Program Review for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (SAPR-PBIS™).

SAPR-PBIS is the most efficient, comprehensive way to compare your current PBIS efforts with evidence-based practices and benchmarks. Six to 10 team members from your school fill out individual self-assessments, rating themselves on key building blocks of successful PBIS. Then your whole team comes together to discuss results, set clear goals for improvement, and assess progress.

SAPR-PBIS has been proven in pilot studies to improve students’ social outcomes and staff satisfaction.
