Fernandez, M. A., & McClain, D. (2014). Georgia's juvenile justice system applies new framework to modify youth behavior trends. Corrections Today, 76, 18.

This brief descriptive manuscript details how the Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice transitioned from a token economy to FW-PBIS in all 27 secure facilities throughout the state. The authors review the importance of using data to guide the decision-making process and provide an example of how facilities tracked data. Lastly, the authors discuss how allowing facilities, instead of the agency, to guide the use of FW-PBIS lead to cultural improvements.
