Elgin School District U-46

Introduction

This case study of Elgin School District U-46 is based on a June 2016 survey of Crisis Prevention Institute customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“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.).”

“We have seen the number of fights as well as student-on-student conflict reduced. We have had staff report that the techniques have helped them with difficult situations. We have been able to gain consistency in the implementations of these techniques in order to reduce the further growth of a crisis event. We have seen out-of-school suspensions reduced over 8 years by over 75% and expulsions for assault on staff reduced by over 60%.”

“We are using the CPI COPING Model(SM) as our re-entry plan for students after exclusionary discipline is used. We have become more organized in the use and outcomes of restraints.”

Case Study: Elgin School District U 46

Introduction

This case study of Elgin School District U-46 is based on a December 2015 survey of Crisis Prevention Institute customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“In the first year of implementation, we reduced incidents of assault on staff by 90% through a strategy on how to effectively break up fights. Since then, assault on staff has remained low. Our out-of-school suspensions have been reduced by 75% over 5 years. Our fights continue to decrease year after year.”

“CPI has improved staff de-escalation skills, 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.).”

“Instructor Services reduces my anxiety, provides the services I need in a pinch or even when I plan (lowering my anxiety), and provides advice or resources to improve my service delivery. "

“CPI training has brought a great deal of stability for our 5000-person staff in dealing with agitated and escalated behavior. CPI also offers more in-depth courses in bullying, trauma-informed care, fights, school bus safety, and more. CPI is one solution, consistent, reliable, evidence-based, and provides an initiative for our staff to begin using these techniques the day after training was conducted.”
