What is PAX?
The PAX Good Behavior Game® is a powerful evidence-based practice, consisting of proven instructional and behavioral health strategies used daily by teachers and students in the classroom. This universal preventive approach not only improves classroom behavior and academics, but also provides a lifetime of benefits for every child by improving self-regulation and co-regulation with peers. Children, their families, teachers, and society benefit for decades as result. Since 1999, PAX Good Behavior Game has been used in thousands of classrooms, in 38 states, Canada, Ireland, Estonia, Sweden and Australia. PAX GBG is the official Good Behavior Game® used at Johns Hopkins University for ongoing research.
How is PAX being used at Huntington Elementary?
Out teachers and staff in the elementary have been trained by the PAX organization to implement the PAX Good Behavior Game with our students. During the 2018-2019 we saw a 48% reduction in off-task behaviors in the classroom and our discipline referrals were drastically reduced. We are seeing great things in our school with PAX!
