Behavior Intervention Specialist, Rudyard Area School District

“We’re a big promoter of PBIS. And because the WhyTry Program has strategies and interventions that align with our goals, we can use it to develop that positive mindset in our students. I feel like they really do combine well together….I think every PBIS school should have some kind of program like this.”

“When you can see the purpose of each WhyTry lesson and use the attention grabbers, music, and metaphors to reach the kids with targeted interventions, WhyTry can help you achieve your goals. We saw a significant decrease in the number of referrals.”

Beth Foster

Counselor, Amanda Gist Elementary

“I’m a teacher at heart, and having WhyTry in my toolkit gives me the flexibility to introduce main parts of the program in my guidance classes, and then I can pull in more content as the kids progress through different grades. It works seamlessly for me.”
