Jack Hille Middle School in Forest Ridge SD 142 is successfully impacting office discipline referrals (ODRs) and school climate in their second year of PBIS implementation.  The school’s Tier 1 team has monthly meetings to review data, problem-solve, and plan their Tier 2/Tier 3 levels of support, with the focus of teaching and modeling expected behaviors.  Since putting their Tier 1 systems in place, Hille has experienced a 29% decrease in the average number of ODRs per 100 students per day, from 0.79 in Aug.-Mar. of 2010-11, to 0.56 in Aug.-Mar. of 2011-12.  The administration will continue working to reduce ODRs by increasing supervision in non-classroom settings, increasing administrator presence in classrooms, and generating more incentives for students to behave appropriately.
