At Safe & Civil Schools,

We’ve refined decades of research on effective teaching methods into practical, easy-to-use principles and procedures. Our multitiered approach is designed to help school staff improve safety and civility schoolwide, in the classroom and with individual students.

Our Multitiered Approach







Consulting & Professional Development

Safe & Civil Schools consulting is designed to help school staff improve safety and civility across all school settings. By so doing, school personnel lay a foundation to engage students and enhance learning.

Our professional development options are designed to give you the tools you need to prevent misbehaviors before they happen and to find solutions for misbehaviors when they do occur. Creating a safe, civil, and productive learning environment will create opportunities for your students to flourish.

“Student misbehavior is something that occurs daily in schools but we believe that misbehavior is a puzzle to be solved with a multitiered approach rather than a threat to be eliminated.” – Randy Sprick

Positive Results,
Proven Efficacy.

The Safe & Civil Schools approach, is grounded in past and current research on effective schools, positive behavior support, school improvement, classroom management, and response to intervention. And over the past 30 years, we have amassed a wide and growing body of evidence from the field that the strategies embodied in the Safe & Civil Schools library are effective in managing student behavior.
