Why use data if we are just getting started?

Collecting and using data are core components of PBIS. Doing these things will help your team monitor and share progress in both PBIS implementation fidelity and student outcomes (behavior). Using data to action plan also informs what your school is doing well and areas for growth.

Research that included PBIS implementing schools in Minnesota and in other states has shown that school team actions, especially the frequency of sharing data with the whole school staff, are statistically significantly related to PBIS sustainability, as shown in the bullet list below.
