Abstract

One state's efforts to assess school readiness to implement a comprehensive mental health innovation are described. To determine the likelihood of achieving success with positive behavioral supports (PBS), a process to identify school buildings ready for planned organizational change was designed and implemented within a large-scale system of care initiative in southeastern Kentucky. The salient features of the innovation are discussed, the process used to design and implement the approach is delineated, and limitations and implications of this method are considered. This multi-systemic intervention can serve as an example of the practice of organizational school psychology.
