Keep your school on track with this powerful research-based behavior management tool!

Maintaining well-disciplined schools is becoming more difficult in today's educational system, and problem behavior or lack of school discipline is reaching crisis proportions. Nationally recognized behavior experts Geoff Colvin and George Sugai provide the "what's," "why's," and "how's" for establishing an effective discipline program while promoting an overall positive and welcoming school climate.

Emphasizing the critical roles that collaboration and teamwork play in achieving success, this powerful resource presents a seven-step process to assist administrators and teachers in working together to develop and implement a practical and proactive schoolwide discipline plan. Based on a five-year federally funded project at the University of Oregon and field-tested in over 60 schools nationwide, this guidebook is filled with practical checklists and user-friendly forms that include explicit instructions to help educators:

  • Define the purpose of the plan
  • Establish schoolwide behavior expectations
  • Teach and sustain behavior expectations
  • Correct problem behaviors
  • Collect and utilize data
  • Maintain the plan over time

7 Steps for Developing a Proactive Schoolwide Discipline Plan contains a full range of effective behavior management practices to help educators develop a strong, affirming school environment that successfully serves students and staff.
