Examples of districts with gains in instructional time through implementation of PBIS include Beach Park CCSD 3Grayslake CCSD 46, and Zion ESD 6. Aggregate office discipline referral (ODR) data for ten schools (nine elementary and one middle) in these Lake County districts were analyzed with results showing a 38% decrease in overall ODRs from 2010-11 to 2012-13, as well as a 48% decrease in ODRs for students with disabilities.  These reductions resulted in a gain of 327 instructional hours (47 days) for all students, including a gain of 105 hours (15 days) for students with disabilities over three years.
