Model Disciplinary Policies. Research Note. Volume 0902
Blazer, Christie
Research Services, Miami-Dade County Public Schools
This Research Note is in response to a request from the Office of Alternative Education to review and report on "model disciplinary policies" as used in school districts around the nation. The primary source of information used to prepare this Research Note came from a professional group identified by Alternative Education. The Advancement Project, a civil rights law, policy, and communications think tank, believes school districts should reform discipline policies and practices that result in excessive suspensions, expulsions, and arrests of students. Based on a lack of credible evidence that harsh punitive measures are an effective way to change students' behavior, many school districts have revised their discipline policies to emphasize the development of positive behaviors. The Advancement Project issued a report that identified 10 elements of model discipline policies and provided examples of actual school district discipline policies.
