For all K-12 students and staff to benefit from positive behaviour interventions and supports (PIs), effective, evidence-based practices need to be in place schoolwide. Now there's a valid and reliable tool that checks the effectiveness of your whole school's PIs effortswithout any need for an outside evaluator. SAPR-PIs is the most efficient, comprehensive way to compare your current PIs efforts with evidence-based practices and benchmarks. Six to ten team members from your school fill out individual self-assessments, rating themselves on key building blocks of successful PIs. Then your whole team comes together to discuss results, set clear goals for improvement, and assess progress.

Proven in pilot studies to improve students' social outcomes and staff satisfaction, SAPR-PIs gives your team the critical information you need to

  • Strengthen all three tiers of schoolwide PIs
  • Link assessment results with step-by-step, evidence-based action items
  • Boost teamwork and build consensus
  • Track progress toward your PIs goals
  • Troubleshoot stalled progress toward goals
  • Reduce time spent managing behaviour issues

With this highly reliable, easy-to-use tool, you can be confident that your school is implementing evidence-based PIs practices that help improve all students' social and academic outcomes.
