The PBIS district coaches in CCSD 93 in Bloomingdale have begun collaborating with the police department, public library, park district, parents, and superintendents from neighboring school districts, as well as their own school board, to initiate community-wide PBIS.  Building principals are also actively involved.  At a recent planning meeting, students made a presentation explaining PBIS, bullying prevention, and how both could benefit the community.  Participants were then asked to complete a commitment form indicating they were ready to be a partner in the community-wide PBIS efforts.  CCSD 93 is making strides involving their surrounding community, as well as parents, in PBIS implementation for the benefit of their students.
