Centennial High School in Champaign CUSD 4 began implementing Tier 2 PBIS in August 2011. The secondary systems team defined and implemented three types of Tier 2 interventions, and began using the Tier 2/Tier 3 Tracking Tool to monitor success. By December 2011, 137 students accessed Tier 2 supports, representing 10% of the population with 88 (64%) responding to the intervention. Staff report that the new Tier 2 system contributes to an overall improvement in school climate, with office discipline referrals (ODRs) for disrespect decreasing 24% from Aug. through Dec. of 2010, compared to the same period in 2011. The team continues to refine their systems and interventions, including development of mental health supports for students who have experienced trauma.
