Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

PBIS, when implemented well, is known to reduce ODR rates for major problem behaviors for students as a whole. However, results typically have not been disaggregated to indicate if students in special education, as well as general education students, benefit. The results of this study indicate that if schools that are using SWIS (many PBIS schools do) reduce their rates of major ODRs, the number of students in special education who receive ODRs, as well as the total number of all students involved in disciplinary incidents will be reduced over time. This is important because students in special education generally tend to be over-represented in disciplinary incidents and unless data are disaggregated, overall results for all students may not provide information needed to understand the impact of school-wide interventions, such as PBIS, on sub-groups with special needs.
