The goal of this project is to evaluate the effectiveness of the SCSL plus START programs. The programs promote effective school leadership skills and a unified approach to school-wide hallway management. Start on Time (START) is a companion program designed to support administrators in creating and implementing a unified approach to school-wide hallway management. START provides leaders with a systematic 10-step process for quickly restoring school order by increasing on-time, compliant, and respectful behaviors. This project is funded by NIJ and takes place in Oklahoma.
Safe & Civil School Leadership (SCSL) is a research-based and modular series of training and coaching materials designed to help school leaders develop effective skills for leading positive student behavior initiatives and promoting school safety. SCSL focuses specifically on developing leadership skills for promoting effective disciplinary structure, student support, school safety and positive student behavior. This project is funded by IES.
The LEAP to Achieve Project trained randomly selected Kindergarten to 3rd grade teachers in effective classroom management practices using the Incredible Years (IY) Teacher Program. The IY Teacher Program is an evidenced based intervention that focuses on strengthening teacher classroom management strategies, promoting children’s pro-social behavior and school readiness, reducing classroom aggression and noncooperation with peers and teachers, and enhancing teacher-parent collaboration. This project was funded by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES).
The CHAMPS project was a five-year long efficacy study of CHAMPS, a teacher training program designed to promote effective classroom management skills in middle school teachers. CHAMPS aimed to strengthen teacher classroom management strategies, promote student pro-social behaviors and school achievement, reduce classroom aggression and noncooperation with peers and teachers, and promote ways teachers can effectively collaborate with parents to support their school involvement. This project was funded by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES).
The Classroom Check-Up (CCU)
This project aimed to develop an online system for school-based personnel to support teachers in effective classroom management practices in elementary schools based on Dr. Reinke’s teacher consultation model, the Classroom Check-Up. This consultation model is designed to increase behavior management while focusing on changing the entire classroom ecology addressing the need for classroom level support while minimizing treatment integrity problems common to school-based consultation. This project was funded by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES).
The purpose of STARS is to test whether the Self-Monitoring Training and Regulation Strategy (STARS) intervention can improve behavior, social emotional learning skills, and academic performance for fifth grade students who engage in disruptive or otherwise challenging classroom behaviors. STARS is a Tier 2 targeted intervention for students who need extra support to engage in positive classroom behaviors. School-based counselors or psychologists serve as STARS facilitators who work with these students to create personally-designed behavior plans in collaboration with the student’s teacher. STARS facilitators provide students with direct instruction in social emotional learning skills and opportunities to practice these skills, receive feedback, and monitor their own performance. This project was funded by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES).
