Throughout my tenure in education, it seems like every year there is something new that is supposed to be the answer to the challenging behaviors we face today. The only constant of these initiatives is that they're all flawed. If we're being honest, we also have to admit that they all have some good qualities too. What we've all come to understand is that there is no perfect solution that will solve the behavior challenges we face in schools today.

One of the greatest challenges in education is that we approach deep-rooted problems with surface-level thinking which leads to surface-level solutions. During this two-day workshop, we work together to delve into these deep-rooted problems with an appropriate depth of thinking which should yield the solutions you need to address the behavior challenges on your campus.

I encourage you to join me both days but feel free to only come to the day that fits your schedule and/or interest. Please take a moment to review the descriptions of the days below so you can learn what you should expect from attending each day of the workshop.




DAY ONE - ALTERNATIVES TO SUSPENSION

Around the country, educators feel that their hands are tied when it comes to addressing students with challenging behavior in our schools. Schools are challenged daily with students exhibiting behavior that negatively impact the learning environment. In most cases, they are limited to only some type of traditional exclusionary consequence such as in-school suspension or out-of-school suspension. They are assigning traditional consequences but the disruptive behaviors that have an adverse effect on the learning environment continue to persist.

The limitations of traditional consequences leave schools feeling helpless because they only focus on deterring disruptive behavior rather than working to change the behavior. Educators are often finding themselves in a quandary when dealing with adverse behavior in school. With federal and state pushes to reduce and, in some cases, eliminate suspensions, schools are feeling helpless when it comes to ensuring they can maintain a safe and secure learning environment.


By the end of this training, participants will understand:

  • a discipline decision-making process that helps ensure decision makers are making thoughtful and thorough decisions when addressing students who need to be held accountable for their behavior.

  • a framework for creating meaningful accountability that is designed to change the adverse behavior while maintaining the idea of some traditional consequences.

  • specific alternatives to suspension that can be used in place of traditional consequences such as suspension.

DAY TWO - Synergizing Restorative Practices, PBIS & Traditional Consequences

A school can have all of the frameworks and strategies in the world but the key to the success of any initiative will always be implementation. Having the right plan and team to execute the plan is essential. This training is designed to provide participants with specific guidance and support to help campuses develop an implementation plan specific to the needs of their campus.

Restorative Practices, Social Emotional Learning and Positive Behaviors Interventions and Supports can all have a positive impact on the climate and culture of your campus. With all initiatives, there will always be deficiencies. One can look to any of these frameworks and determine that they alone will not meet the diverse needs of their campus.


By the end of this training, participants will understand:


  • how to develop a campus framework that will allow them to incorporate the key elements of Restorative Practices, Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) along with traditional consequences to improve the climate and culture of the school.

  • how to create a restorative practices implementation plan that ensures the fidelity of the initiative as well as creates buy-in with the majority of the campus' stakeholders.
