School Discipline Programs

As we have mentioned earlier, each school’s situation is unique. This is why we have designed our programs to be adaptable to the different discipline concerns and staff makeup that is unique to your school’s particular professional development needs and to your school’s discipline environment.

To have a better understanding of exactly what we do and the programs we offer schools who use our Professional Development Discipline Services, we have listed each program and a brief description below.

Your discipline trainer will work with you and your staff to determine which of these programs should be implemented, along with their duration of said programs. Your discipline trainer will provide a complete overview and explanation of each of these programs following the initial school discipline assessment we provide to all schools FREE of Charge.
