The Development and Implementation of an In-School Suspension Program.
Rentz, Richard D.
Outcomes of a high school inschool suspension program are presented in this practicum report. Because students associated the former discipline program with unfair treatment and inconsistent sanctions, a new program was developed. Goals were to improve student behavior, attendance, morale, self-esteem, and academic achievement in grades 9 through 12. Methodology included analysis of daily reports, before and after student self-rating evaluations and opinion surveys, and teacher program evaluations conducted during the program's 6th and 10th weeks. Results included positive changes in each of the five goals. Favorable teacher feedback recommended program continuation. Appendices contain student surveys; student and teacher program evaluations; and program report forms, policies, and correspondence. An annotated bibliography of 23 sources is included.
