We examined educators’ sense of efficacy and burnout within comprehensive, integrated, three-tiered (Ci3T) models of prevention implemented in four middle and two high schools. At the time of this study, schools had completed 2 years of implementing Ci3T models as part of a larger district initiative. We examined how educators were faring with a specific interest in their well-being. We explored four sets of educator-reported variables: Ci3T treatment integrity, Ci3T social validity, sense of efficacy, and feelings related to burnout. Results indicated educators experienced emotional exhaustion nearly identical to a national sample; however, depersonalization and personal accomplishment scores revealed positive and moderate-to-large-magnitude differences compared with a national sample. Moreover, educators reported higher levels of efficacy related to instructional strategies and classroom management than a national sample. Higher self-reported levels of Ci3T treatment integrity were associated with increased levels of efficacy related to Student Engagement, Instructional Strategies, and Classroom Management. We conclude with a discussion of limitations and directions for future inquiry.
