This report presents indicative findings from the first phase of an evaluation of Positive Behaviour for Learning: School-Wide (PB4L: School-Wide). The report discusses the implementation and short-term shifts for schools that began PB4L: School-Wide in 2010/11. The findings suggest that overall, PB4L: School-Wide is well-regarded in participating schools and is linked to a wide range of changes for schools, teachers, and students.
The evaluation questions this report explores are:
- What short-term shifts is SW supporting towards SW outcomes for students and schools?
- Are core SW practices being implemented as intended?
- What factors enable or hinder the shifts in schools?
- What does effective support for SW schools look like in a New Zealand context?
