Throughout 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. This training will provide participants with concrete strategies that will empower them to shift from assigning suspensions when a student compromises the learning. These alternatives focus on how schools can still hold students accountable along with an intentional focus on changing the adverse behavior.

By the end of this workshop:

  • a strategic 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 highly effective 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.
