Overview

Mounting evidence shows that zero-tolerance policies, suspensions, and restrictive security policies fail to improve school safety and student behaviors, and are linked with increased risk of dropping out. Minority students are suspended at disproportionate rates, and over a million cases of corporal punishment are reported each year. Against this dismal backdrop, David Dupper presents a transformative new model of school discipline that is preventive, proactive, and based on relationships.

Unlike traditional punitive and exclusionary practices, the model developed in this Workshop volume focuses on enhancing students' connections to school through building relationships and bolstering social skills. Drawing on the latest research about what actually works-and what doesn't-this highly practical guide catalogs an array of proven and promising practices designed to engage, not exclude, students. Rather than illustrate a one-size-fits-all approach, this book guides practitioners and administrators in identifying their school's unique needs and selecting appropriate strategies to use at universal, targeted, and remedial levels. A five-step strategic planning model helps schools transition toward a holistic, relationship-based approach to discipline.

Boxes, bulleted points, evidence summaries, and practice tips make this an accessible, forward-thinking resource for school personnel seeking to engage students and reduce behavior problems in the most effective, pragmatic, and cost-efficient manner possible.
