Planning and Developing In-School Suspension Programs. Monographs in Education Number 9.
Short, Paula M.
Background for this monograph comes from a study of in-school suspension programs conducted in schools in North Carolina. Chapter 1 focuses on the effectively disciplined school in terms of a total school perspective and the characteristics of a well-disciplined school. Chapter 2 addresses three categories of administrative discipline strategies: nonexclusion, out-of-school suspension, and inschool suspension. In Chapter 3, alternatives to out-of-school suspension and three models of inschool suspension programs are presented. Chapter 4 provides descriptions of three actual programs: punitive model, punitive/academic model, and punitive/therapeutic model. In chapter 5, issues in establishing inschool suspension programs are discussed. Chapter 6 describes the need to make decisions about location, room assignment, and personnel in the planning of inschool suspension programs. The steps to launching this program is the focus of chapter 7. Appended are eight references, nine procedure forms (including referral, log, and regulations), plus a questionnaire and a self-evaluative form. (SI)
