Walter R. Sundling Jr. High,  Palatine CCSD 15, used staff survey data to change their PBIS practices for 2009. Dividing staff into focus groups after the 2008 Kickoff, they asked participants to name what worked well and what needed to be changed in terms of kickoff, celebrations, teaching expectations, consequences, and using data.  After making changes based on survey data, the total office discipline referrals (ODRs) fell from 277 in the first quarter 2008 to 176 in the first quarter 2009, for a 36 % drop.
