Over the past 20 years, educators have seen a transformation in many facets of school life. Curriculum has changed dramatically, technology continues to be implemented and assessment has become far more rigorous. Yet, in many schools, discipline remains relatively the same as it was in 1995
Traditional exclusionary “consequences” – office referrals, in-school suspensions, out-of-school suspensions and expulsion – have the unintended result of removing the most academically at-risk students from the classroom. Citing current research in both the U.S. and Canada, advocacy groups and government agencies have supported an end to exclusionary and zero-tolerance policies, saying they are applied unfairly to minorities and student with special needs.
In recent years, schools have begun moving toward progressive discipline, restorative practices, PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions & Support) and other alternative methodologies. But which of these systems actually works? And how can they be successfully implemented?
Now in its fifth year, the School Discipline Conference provides a forum where educators can gather information on various approaches and philosophies. It will assemble internationally recognized experts and speakers and will feature evidence-based programs as well as promising new approaches developed by practitioners.
In 2016 the School Discipline Conference will be offered as part of the Innovative Schools Summit in two locations: Join us this summer in Atlanta or Las Vegas to gain insights for improving academic achievement.
