Resource Handbook on Discipline Codes.
National School Resource Network, Washington, DC.
This handbook is designed for all school and community members who are interested in developing or improving discipline policies and procedures. It is divided into seven sections covering the various issues discipline policy writers must typically address. There are also guidelines for developing and communicating discipline information and criteria for evaluating codes. Each of the major topics in the handbook contains two types of information, a state-of-the-art commentary that covers recent thinking, research, and, where appropriate, laws relevant to the topic. Actual examples from school codes illustrate the commentary. The material included in the commentary is based on articles, publications, and interviews with discipline specialists. The code illustrations were obtained from schools throughout the United States. (Author)
