Rethinking Discipline: Strategies at Work in Schools Today
Web-based Event
February 5, 2013
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM   (Eastern)
Zero-tolerance policies, which require out-of-school suspension or expulsion for certain inappropriate behaviors, have become the go-to disciplinary approach in many schools, though research suggests they have some downsides. Education Week will present a webinar on two alternate approaches that are more focused on changing behavior, restorative practices and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). Educators at Haut Gap Middle and other Charleston, SC, schools, say PBIS has transformed student behavior and increased academic performance. At Christian Fenger Academy High in Chicago, the restorative approach to student behavior teaches discipline through discussion, support, and “peace circles.”
