I actually have experience working in a school that had strict behavior plans with loads of extrinsic rewards built in (galore). Food, trinkets, you name it. Behavior logs were serious things and were turned in after each grading period for rewards.
So, start small. Quietly do what works in your room and don't make it a point to tell others that their methods are wrong. It's more beneficial to have others see how great your kids are year in and year out. Slow and steady wins the race. :)
