Changing Past Student Discipline Practices to Create a District-Wide Discipline Plan
Green, Judith A.
Education and Urban Society, v41 n4 p457-468 2009
Improving student discipline is a constant challenge in the field of P-12 education. The challenge is especially great for district-level administrators who must address the educational and social needs of all students. As a district-level administrator, the author participates in a study of a midwestern district of elementary (preschool-8) administrators and school board members implementing district-wide change surrounding discipline. Through collaboration and creativity among various constituents, the planners develop and implement a district-wide student discipline plan based on positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS). This article presents the author's view of the study and includes descriptions of planning and implementation activities, communication, new district practices, accomplishments, and lessons learned in the overall process.
