The Classroom Management & Discipline Program.
Dunn, Margaret E.
The Classroom Management and Discipline Program, initiated to assist Texas school districts in improving school discipline and dropout prevention, is a statewide university/school/community partnership. Program goals are to: provide training and technical assistance to help districts maintain and improve discipline; reduce dropout rates, school disruptions, truancy, drug use, and school crime; develop alternatives to school suspensions; and implement programs that enhance the overall learning environment, provide leadership and resources for improved school discipline and academic achievement, and facilitate university/school/community networking. During the summer the program sponsors four intensive, week-long training courses for school teams from either a school district or single campus. The training is action-oriented, with each team developing a plan to improve school discipline or provide alternatives to out-of-school removal. The training's focus is on effective classroom management techniques and strategies to reduce disciplinary problems. Followup technical assistance is available to districts that send teams for training. (Author/MSE)
