A major advance in school-wide discipline is the emphasis on school-wide systems of support that includes proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments. Instead of using a patchwork of individual behavioral management plans, a continuum of positive behavior support for all students within a school is implemented in areas including the classroom and non-classroom settings. Attention is focused on creating and sustaining primary, secondary, and tertiary systems of support that improve lifestyle results for all children by making problem behavior less effective, and desired behavior more functional.
