Manual for Improving Student Discipline.
Woodall, Michael V.
This manual outlines a process of establishing a student discipline program that can be tailor-made to specific schools or districts. The first chapter describes two basic considerations that must serve as the foundation for any discipline program--public expectations and legal requirements. The first part of this chapter explores sources of different public expectations and potential conflicts, while the latter section provides a look at the basis for decisions in the legal system as well as established requirements that the schools must meet. Chapter two provides a step-by-step proven process for designing a student discipline system. The third chapter describes important points necessary for program implementation. It reviews monitoring techniques, frequent problems, and the necessity of making adjustments to the program. The final chapter provides an example of one district's attempt at implementing the described program and contains copies of actual policies and operational forms, both with commentary. (Author/MLF)
