Schaumburg CCSD 54 is in their fourth year of district-wide PBIS implementation. Twenty-five of the district’s 27 buildings are implementing PBIS. Schaumburg has a District Leadership Team (DLT) in place with a family member representative who is part of the district parent teacher association. As of February 2011, 13 of the 25 PBIS schools in the district had a family member on their Tier 1 team. The DLT has committed to increase family participation on all school Tier 1 PBIS teams.

Urbana SD 116 is a PBIS demonstration site focusing on blending community partnerships within the multi-tiered PBIS intervention structure. During the past year, seven Action Teams developed a strategic plan to strengthen supports for youth and families. These Action Teams included family members, individuals from the community, district leaders, and Illinois PBIS Network members. The results stated in the strategic plan include the development of a family engagement center in every school and specific strategies that will connect students with community resources.

Woodland CCSD 50 in Gurnee has begun fostering community partnerships. The District Leadership Team includes the Superintendent of Recreation for the Park District, the Executive Director of Warren Township Youth and Family Services, and a parent representative. District behavior expectations have been posted at the Warren Township Youth and Family Services site and expectations are reviewed with students at group meetings and during activities.
