Senate Bill 100 (SB100) was passed in the Illinois Senate January of 2015. The bill seeks to address the causes and consequences of the "school-to-prison pipeline" by legislating disciplinary guidelines for both public and charter schools. SB100 explicitly calls for schools to engage in problem solving to support behavioral needs in place of suspensions and / or expulsions.

- Summary: The core features of PBIS have been empirically validated through rigorous research studies. The challenge today is less about identifying the behavior support strategies needed in schools and more about enhancing state, regional and district capacity to implement these strategies at scales of social significance with fidelity, efficiency, sustainability, and cultural relevance. This brief is an overview of the key structures for implementing across a district.
