Crisis Prevention Institute Case Study

Bainville School District – Montana


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

“I think that the techniques that CPI teaches, and the emphasis on prevention and verbal intervention are priceless. Every teacher should have them in their toolbox. It helps teachers feel more secure knowing that they have a plan in case of physical aggression, but even better is the common language and de-escalation techniques.”

“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.)”

“CPI has helped the students be able to stay in the classroom. They are more accepted by their peers (because they are not seen as scary anymore) and they have been able to learn more and have confidence in their own abilities.”
