Feedback form is now closed.
The implementation of effective student discipline practices has become a leading concern of public school administrators and educational personnel. Traditionally, districts have chosen to address student challenging behavior by applying exclusionary discipline practices (e.g., detention, suspension, and expulsion). However, there is no research demonstrating that these practices reduce the rate of student discipline. In fact, studies have found relatively high rates of disciplinary recidivism among those who are suspended. Research surrounding alternatives to reactive exclusionary discipline practices have identified proactive and positive strategies that show great promise for reducing school violence and disruptive behaviors.
In this session, participants will receive:
  • An explanation of evidence-based practices proven to reduce challenging behavior,
  • Steps for creating equitable disciplinary policies and procedures
  • Suggestions for using data to make disciplinary decisions.
