Discipline Seminar. Report.
Carson, Mary R.; And Others
For three weeks participants in a Seattle (Washington) seminar conducted an intensive review of school discipline problems that included a survey of all staff; a sample survey of students at three shcool levels; five community meetings; presentations by 61 individuals, agencies, or groups; a review of district statistics, practices, and procedures; and review of resource materials from a variety of sources. This report identifies the problems and makes recommendations for their timely solution. The report begins with a set of general observations that focus on points of special interest to the seminar. This is followed by a list of general principles that are the rationale for considering discipline as an educational mechanism. General recommendations and implementation recommendations are followed by specific recommendations in 21 areas. The format used states the problem and follows it with a numbered list of recommendations. The final section lists board of education policy recommendations concerning attendance, student conduct, retention, modification of policies governing readmission of students after disciplinary action, and restitution.
