Discipline problems discussed include drug and alcohol problems, violence, student absences, and crime by students and others on the campus. Suggestions for effective campus control are offered. Chapter 3 reviews some of the interpersonal problems that a disciplinarian might encounter when dealing with students, teachers, or parents, and provides suggestions for dealing effectively with these problems. Chapter 4 reviews resources and alternative approaches available to disciplinarians. This chapter reviews the team approach to discipline, community resources, and alternatives to suspension. The fifth chapter briefly outlines successful programs from many different school districts. Whenever possible, a contact person and telephone number are provided. (Author/JM)
