This starred paper consists of reviews of literature regarding the factors sustaining effect and implementation of School-Wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports for students. Twelve studies were chosen for review on sustaining factors of SWPBIS. The studies included a range of dates from 2009 to 2018. The review is delimited by school settings.


The studies I reviewed have given me additional information on strategies to sustain implementation of SWPBIS. The purpose of the paper was to help educators that still have problems with sustaining implementation of PBIS in school settings as a main concern. I strongly believe PBIS help teachers to build on positive behavioral philosophies and processes designed to improve school climate. In PBIS, we can prevent inappropriate behavior in our schools through evidence-based tools, not punishing students.
