A Systematic Approach for Responsibly and Effectively Managing the Disruptive Behavior of "At-Risk" Students.
Jones, Vern; Dunn, Cory
This paper analyzes a systems approach for dealing with the disruptive behavior of at-risk students based on the principle that there is a shared responsibility among all school staff and that the methods employed should respond to the emotional and skill needs of the students. The approach has the following key components: (1) support by school board policies and administrative guidelines; (2) teacher assessment of appropriate classroom management and of instructional methods for working with these students, along with the responsibility for using them; (3) assistance available to teachers to examine interventions and to find alternatives; (4) a clear and effectively communicated school-wide student management system, with procedures for dealing with student problems; and (5) outside consultation, utilization of community resources, and referral to special education programs. Two figures present forms and policies used in the Greater Albany Public Schools (Oregon). A list of 34 references is provided. (MH)
