In spite of research documenting the negative effects of punishment, most high schools and correctional facilities rely on punishment to establish order and compliance with rules and routines (Nelson, Sprague, Jolivette, Smith, & Tobin, 2009). One alternative to punitive consequences is School Wide Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (SWPBIS). Since research on the implementation of SWPBIS in correctional facilities is limited, this mixed method study evaluated the effects of the implementation of SWPBIS on problem behavior, academic achievement, and social behavior of students in a juvenile corrections facility. Stufflebeam’s evaluation model was used as a framework for the study (Stufflebeam & Shinkfield, 2007).
