Now revised and expanded, this volume explains how to design, implement, and evaluate a comprehensive, integrated, three-tiered (Ci3T) model of prevention.
Rather than presenting a packaged program, the book provides resources and strategies for designing and tailoring Ci3T to the needs and priorities of a particular school or district community. Ci3T is unique in integrating behavioral, academic, and social–emotional components into a single research-based framework.
User-friendly features include tools for collecting and using student and schoolwide data; guidance for selecting effective interventions at each tier; detailed case examples; and tips for enhancing collaboration between general and special educators, other school personnel, and parents.
In a convenient large-size format, the volume includes several reproducible forms that can be downloaded and printed for repeated use. Prior edition title: Developing Schoolwide Programs to Prevent and Manage Problem Behaviors.

“This ‘must-buy’ volume presents a systems approach that can help schools maximize their instructional and behavior management capabilities. The authors display a broad understanding of the factors affecting schooling outcomes, simultaneously addressing academic, behavioral and social-emotional domains. In my view, Ci3T is easily the most comprehensive framework to emerge within over a decade—and has the potential to transform schooling as we know it. I am particularly impressed with the authors’ emphasis on low-intensity, proactive strategies that teachers can implement easily. The field of education is fortunate to have this gem of a book.”

“This groundbreaking book clearly presents a comprehensive integration of systemic prevention efforts for both academic and social behavior. The authors’ mix of science with practical, understandable examples makes this a perfect example of a research-to-practice work. Everyone who strives to implement prevention science in schools should carry a copy of this second edition as their principal guide to multi-tiered systems of support.”

“Offering important updates to the first edition, this second edition provides a critical roadmap to schoolwide multi-tiered systems of support. Lane and colleagues have drawn on their long history of successful partnerships with schools across the nation to produce this tremendous resource.
