Directory of Schools Reported to Have Exemplary Discipline.
Pinnell, Gay Su; And Others
To help educators and community members improve elementary and secondary educational practices, the Phi Delta Kappa Commission on Discipline assembled this directory of over 500 public and private schools reported to have exemplary discipline. Recommendations for schools to be included came from commission members' personal networks, organizations for educational innovation and administration, and a literature review. Using data drawn from a questionnaire survey, the directory lists schools in ten U.S. geographic regions and Canada. The entry for each school gives its name, address, telephone number, an administrator or contact-person, urban or rural location, public or private type, grade levels, number of staff and students, and short descriptive phrases about its disciplinary program activities. Over 85 descriptive phrases are used, covering more than 60 categories of activities, including volunteer programs, rewards, school climate, school-community relations, curriculum, due process, public relations, policy-making, and student and staff involvement. Four appendices present aggregate data on the schools' demographic characteristics, an alphabetical index of the schools, an index by disciplinary program activities, and a copy of the survey questionnaire.
