One of the things that stood out for me in the reading is the program they have established at Lincoln that rewards students for not having behavoir referals. At my school, students weren't rewarded for not misbehaving, it was just expected that you would behave. Instead of rewarding those that were doing well, they punished those that were not. I guess it can be different for every setting though. I'm sure my schools system of punishment would be far less effective in a setting like lincoln.
I was also struck by the mention of adding two new pic-nic tables to their playground area. In Saint Cloud, I don't think that would have been worth mentioning at all.
