The MBI model is a positive proactive approach to discipline and school climate, according to MBI Consultant Sandy Elmore.
ďEach MBI school develops universals (expectations) for their school,Ē Elmore wrote in a letter to the schools. ďThe expectations are posted throughout the school and taught explicitly to the students. A positive climate enhances studentís self-esteem along with providing a wonderful learning environment.Ē
MBI can be used from pre-school through high school, Elmore wrote.
