Summary:
Krueger Middle School in Michigan City, IN has improved their school-wide behavior plan by moving from a reactive disciplinary system that relied primarily on punishment to a proactive approach that incorporates the principles of Positive Behavioral Supports. The system of School-Wide Positive Behavior Supports has increased their capacity to reduce school disruptions, and educate all students including those with problem behaviors through the following:

  • Clearly defined outcomes
  • Research-validated practices
  • Supportive administrative systems
  • Use of information for problem solving.

Attached is a copy of their school-wide handbook, the definitions of their behavioral expectations (also call their behavioral matrix), and quiz they have administered to their staff to test how well they know their school-wide behavior plan.
