CPI Sets the Standard for Our Training

The Global Professional Instructors who train us are phenomenal! Their knowledge and enthusiasm sets the standard for us. I have always appreciated their direct support and assistance (in person, through email, in the Instructor Community on Yammer) to figure out how to handle crisis situations.

Crisis Prevention Institute Case Study

Highlands School District – Pennsylvania

Introduction

This case study of Highlands School District is based on a June 2016 survey of Crisis Prevention Institute customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“I have been a CPI Certified Instructor since 1994. I believe that CPI has kept up with research, designed updated instruction, placed emphasis on prevention rather than intervention/response, and all the people I train say “everyone in school should have this training.”

“CPI improved staff de-escalation skills, improved overall safety, and has become ingrained in our training.”

“Using CPI training has led to improved student outcomes, because of an increase in direct instruction time. (For instance, test scores, student grades, graduation rates, etc.)”

“When I started in my district, restraints were used often and there was little change in student behavior. Over 20 years, the use of restraints has decreased in most areas, and where restraints are necessary parents and staff know that the welfare of the students comes first.”
