The PAX Good Behavior Game is changing classroom culture and fostering lasting life skills. The class is playing the PAX Good Behavior Game, an evidence-based classroom management program that is implemented by elementary school teachers. BOCES Substance Abuse Prevention Coordinator Jen Russo piloted a training in June, and Education Support Services has since brought in a national trainer to prepare teachers in Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake, Mohanosen, Cohoes and Schenectady to begin implementing the program in their classrooms.
The Pax good behavior game has been in area schools for more than a year. Now, community members are learning ways to implement the game into every day activities outside of the classroom.
Horizon Education Alliance helped local teachers implement the PAX Good Behavior Game. Teachers say their students love the game, and teachers themselves are less stressed about behavior issues.
Ohio citizens have done something no other place in America has done. They voted for a levy to fund and implement a named evidence-based practice in their counties’ elementary schools—scientifically proven to protect children from lifetime mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders, and to increase high-school graduation and university entry.
