The research attempts to answer the question of what factors impact the successful implementation of PBIS in a Midwest suburban school district. The mixed methods approach is appropriate in this regard because it utilizes both quantitative survey data and qualitative focus group data to identify the needs and factors that go into successful implementation. The focus group data allowed the identified PBIS team to relate its experience, as well as a team of individuals, who are not on the PBIS team to extrapolate on their experience. The two focus groups provided unique perspectives. The PBIS team attended two day training and the school team did not. The PBIS team is expected to relay the information effectively to staff and eventually to the student population for implementation. The data described and compared the similarities and differences among the trained PBIS team and a representation of staff members who did not attend the training. The opportunity to get the perspectives of both groups provides the researcher with data that were used to identify needs of school districts prior to the implementation and raise the current 50% implementation with fidelity result in the state. The reason for the mixed methods approach was to provide a richer viewpoint of the perception among staff and increase the validation of the research through a comparison and triangulation of data. Through the mixed methods process the district was able to identify where schools were succeeding
