PAX Ohio Initiative
The PAX Ohio initiative represents a substantial investment in the future of the citizens of Ohio and the prevention of mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders as well as drug addiction. This investment will take place in the following forms:
- Training new teachers in PAX Good Behavior Game
- Developing the skills of those already trained
- Empowering communities to support and sustain the intervention
Successful implementations of the PAX Good Behavior Game have been at work in Ohio for some time. These successes are due to several common components including: Champion contacts within each school, Schools committed to the short and long-term success of their students, and local community support of their school’s PAX implementation.
