How Do We Accomplish This? Nothing Has Worked In The Past 2013 TEC 18 That ’ s Okay, It ’ s not your fault, but your staff can be trained to fix your school ’ s discipline problems You just need to take a different approach.

Step One Realizing What You Don’t Know:

Step One Realizing What You Don ’ t Know The first step towards solving your school ’ s discipline problems and finding workable solutions is to realize: Your teachers are not trained to be psychologists or disciplinarians Your teachers may very well be fearful when in the school setting Your Administrators are not trained to be intervention specialists Your staff has not been trained to solve discipline problems 2013 TEC 19

Step Two Understanding You Can’t Do It Alone:

Step Two Understanding You Can ’ t Do It Alone You can ’ t learn how to ride a bike by reading a book… You also can ’ t learn how to solve your school ’ s discipline problems by watching a discipline seminar on DVD 2013 TEC 20

Step Two Understanding You Can’t Do It Alone:

Step Two Understanding You Can ’ t Do It Alone You need a professional, experienced in working with school discipline problems, to help guide you in your decision making. They should: …..interview you one-on-one to determine your true needs and to create a priority list ….educate you about the best practices for the implementation of a comprehensive , systematic , discipline training program for your staff ….help you to identify the key team players who will help you with implementation. . ..help you to determine your budget You need help finding a solution 2013 TEC 21

Step Three Understanding The Desired Outcomes of A Systematic Approach :

Step Three Understanding The Desired Outcomes of A Systematic Approach Teachers are t rained to deal with 90% of the discipline incidents in class that are now sent to the principal ’ s office All staff (teachers, administrators and support staff) are using proactive researched-based strategies regardless of what the student says or does Students are treated fairly and consistently in terms of behavioral expectations and consequences Solving your school ’ s discipline problems requires all faculty and staff to be on the same page 2013 TEC 22

Step Four Understanding That Implementing a Systematic Approach is Not a One Time Event:

Step Four Understanding That Implementing a Systematic Approach is Not a One Time Event Systematic discipline training is an ongoing process, not an event. A systematic approach to school discipline is designed to train your staff by implementing a series of seminars, group meetings and one-on-one training This ensures that, by ongoing observations from the trainer as well as strategy repetition, the skills that are being taught become sustainable “ tool ” in teachers ’ “ toolboxes. ” This is accomplished by revisiting the school over a period of months to monitor progress 2013 TEC

Step Five What To Look For When Interviewing School Discipline Professional Development Firms :

Step Five What To Look For When Interviewing School Discipline Professional Development Firms How long have they been in business? Can you speak with the owner? Can you call the references? Can you call the testimonial personnel? Will they give you a customer list? 2013 TEC 24 Do they offer onsite, ongoing training to ensure proper program implementation or only a one-time seminar?
