What are the Economic Costs of Implementing SWPBIS in Comparison to the Benefits from Reducing Suspensions?

In this brief, we provide initial evidence that SWPBIS is less expensive to implement than the longer-term costs re- lated to suspensions and dropout. This finding is important as the benefits of reducing suspensions and dropout go far beyond simple fiscal savings. An analysis of the available data suggests that SWPBIS may be an economical alterna- tive to not only ineffective approaches, like suspension, but also traditional dropout prevention programs.
