District Scales Up Bullying Prevention

Palatine CCSD 15 is systematically scaling up bullying prevention within the PBIS framework (BP-PBIS).  Beginning with initial training to five schools in February 2012, seven of the district’s 20 schools implemented an Expect Respect initiative during 2012-13.  District support was provided through an annual networking forum and ongoing building-based coaching.  Schools included student voice in the planning and implementation phases.  They also progress monitored implementation through a systematic review of discipline data and student perception surveys.  Current planning is underway for five more schools to implement Expect Respect in 2013-14.
