Curtner, Karen Joan
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Arkansas State University
Concern about disruptive and violent behavior has become the focus of the public schools today because of the number of incidents of violence that has occurred in the past few years across the country. The Federal and State of Arkansas legislation have focused on making schools safer by creating rules and guidelines that address policies and practices for public school districts. The number of alternative schools in Arkansas has increased due to the increasing number of students who have problems that disrupt their own and others' educational opportunities and academic performance. The purpose of this study was to examine the safety of alternative learning environments in Arkansas school districts. A survey of alternative school administrators was conducted to determine the types and levels of disruptive or violent behavior, what disciplinary actions were taken, what curriculum and prevention services were provided, what nature of collaboration of community agencies existed and what types of security measures were used to prevent such behaviors.
