Advancing Education Effectiveness: Interconnecting School Mental Health and School-Wide Positive Behavior Support

Mental Health/Social-Emotional Well-Being
Systems Alignment
This monograph is about improving the quality of life and outcomes for children and youth, especially those children who are at risk for or experiencing emotional and behavioral challenges. The editors have wisely chosen a title for the monograph that signals the pivotal role of education in this endeavor. Advancing Education Effectiveness: Interconnecting School Mental Health and School- wide Positive Behavioral Support clearly conveys the message that effective education is the primary goal and linking two important processes will be the strategy promoted to achieve this goal. The Interconnected Systems Framework (ISF) is described in the following chapters as the proposed mechanism that can effectively link School Mental Health (SMH) and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) in order to leverage the individual strengths of each of these processes and produce enhanced teaching and learning environments through their strategic linkage.

High School PBIS
PBIS Foundations
Tier 1
Systems of school-wide positive behavior support have been adopted, sustained, and expanded in elementary and middle schools. However, the same levels of implementation have not been documented widely and replicably at the high school level, especially, in large enrollment urban environments. The purpose of this monograph is to describe what we generally are learning about the implementation of school-wide positive behavior support in high schools, and give recommendations about what educators might do to improve behavior support for all high school students. Recommendations for future research directions also are discussed.
