Guidelines for the Appraisal of Policies and Procedures Governing Discipline and the Control of Violence and Vandalism.
Foundation for Educational Administration, Burlingame, CA.
This guide has been prepared to assist school districts in self-appraisal of their policies governing discipline and control of violence and vandalism, and also to facilitate the development of new policies by providing model policies and procedures implemented in other school districts. Accordingly, the first section lists guidelines for policies governing responsibilities of the board of education, superintendent, school site administrators (i.e., principals), teachers, parents, and students with respect to discipline and control of violence. Discipline-related policy guidelines are also provided for staff development programs, alternative education, interagency involvement (between school boards and law enforcement officials), and communications among respective spheres of authority. Eight appendixes provide 20 sample California school district policies governing student behavior, administrative regulations, student rights and responsibilities, alternatives to suspension, teacher and parent responsibilities, and school/law enforcement liaisons. A ninth appendix provides rating sheets for district self-evaluation. (TE)
