Kimball, K. A., Jolivette, K., & Sprague, J. R. (2017). Agency-stakeholder reflections: Perspectives of state-wide adoption of the PBIS framework in juvenile facilities. Journal of Correctional Education, 68, 17-36.

This data-based manuscript surveyed juvenile justice agency and facility staff from two states who had been implementing FW-PBIS for several years as a state-wide effort as to their perceptions of FW-PBIS effectiveness. The author(s) identified facilitators (positive view of FW-PBIS framework effectiveness, positive culture change across agency and within facilities, improved consistency and fidelity of FW-PBIS practices) and barriers (facility instability, slowness of change related to practices and policies, inconsistent buy-in, and data quality issues) to FW-PBIS implementation as well as specific systems, data, and practice supports they created and used as part of these efforts.
