Directory of In-School Alternatives to Suspension.
Cooney, Sondra; And Others
This directory is a by-product of a study to meet the needs of educators for information on suspension alternatives. The materials, which do not evaluate or identify exemplary programs, describe operating procedures, identify persons who may be contacted for more information, and provide program information based on descriptions submitted by program staff members. In addition, general program types and program activities are described. Suggestions from program personnel about planning disciplinary alternative programs are listed. Problems encountered in these programs are noted and key elements of successful programs are described. Program descriptions from 29 states are presented in detail. (JAC)
