This report evaluates a project designed to reduce the number of student suspensions and disciplinary referrals in the Oklahoma City Public Schools. The report describes these four program components: 1) the Elementary Early Intervention Program to provide preventative services for students with absentee and school behavior problems; 2) the School Awareness and Adjustment Program for middle school students with adjustment difficulties in a large school environment; 3) the Elementary Developmental Guidance/Human Relations Program to promote positive student intergroup and intercultural relationships; and 4) the School Awareness and Intervention Program to reduce the overrepresentation of minority students involved in suspensions and other disciplinary actions at the high school level. Evaluation results indicate general improvements in classroom adjustment, self concept, and school awareness among targeted students, and decreased absentee and suspension rates. Data on the extent of parental involvement, attendance at teacher workshops, and teachers' and administrators' perspectives on the project are included. Recommendations concerning project objectives, data collection, and project scope are made. (MJL)
