A Two-Phase Impact Study of In-School Alternatives to Suspension. Second Year Report, Appendix A: Case Studies.
J W K International Corp., Annandale, VA.
A growing concern among parents and educators about the increasing incidence of school suspensions led to an exploratory study of the impact of in-school alternatives to out-of-school suspension. This volume from the second year report presents case study data and analyses from three of the six school districts comprising the project sample. For each case study, an introduction, a review of the discipline policy at the school district level, a program description, the procedures used to refer students to the program, site observations, and a summary are provided. The data analyses focus on such topics as the philosophical commitment of the principal and program staff, attitudes toward due process, characteristics and qualifications of the program staff, coordination of resources, preservice/inservice training efforts, and the integration of the alternative program into the regular instructional program. Sample assignments for average and remedial students placed on in-school suspension in one district are appended. (HLM)
