dc.description.abstractThis study was designed to determine the effectiveness of the Student In Good Standing Program (SGSP) and the use of positive incentives as an effective School Wide Improvement Program. The SGSP is a comprehensive school wide approach to motivate students in hopes that they will improve their academic standing and science education, decrease absenteeism, and reduce behavior issues in our school. The effectiveness of the program was measured by comparing the study group's pre-treatment performance during their 7th grade year to that of their 8th grade year. The results indicated that the program was not an effective school wide improvement program.en
