In recent years, proactive support of student behavior has been a major focus of school administrators. Prior research has indicated that previously popular approaches, e.g., corporal punishment and zero-tolerance policies, are ineffective in curbing student infractions, resulting in a shift to the use of data-driven and evidenced-based approaches and measures. Due to this shift, the implementation of Response to Intervention (RTI) and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) has rapidly increased. The purpose of the current study was to investigate the utility of behavior screening for high school students, using the Behavior Screening Checklist (BSC-III; Muyskens, Marston, & Reschly, 2007). This study was conducted during the first year of behavioral screening collection of the BSC-III for this school. Concurrent validity between BSC-III and achievement and behavioral data was explored; results indicated both forms of data were significantly related to BSC-III scores as evidenced by correlation and regression analyses.
