This report suggests that the school program for disruptive students should be intertwined with the total educational policy and resources of the school district and advocates individualized instruction, resource rooms, and staff participation in curriculum planning to aid the disruptive student. The report highlights the importance of good relationships with community agencies and the police. In its discussion of legal aspects and security measures, the report stresses that all students, policemen, and school officials should know their rights and responsibilities. Sensitive administrative procedures and the inclusion of students, faculty, and community in establishing regulations can prevent many student disruptions. To aid in identification and prevention of potentially disruptive situations, school districts need clearly written policy statements on special classes, special schools, and alternative schools. The report concludes with several helpful illustrations of how various school districts have tried to deal with disruptive students. (Author/LAA)
