This conceptual manuscript details the school-to-prison pipeline and links FW-PBIS adoption and implementation as a means to address such pipeline. The authors provide a brief literature review on the research related to alternative programs, how PBIS is based on a public health model, and the characteristics of youth in restrictive settings. The authors describe adaptations to the framework for juvenile settings and a research agenda for such work.
