The School Discipline Consensus Report was designed to be a guide for officials in education, health, law enforcement and juvenile justice and their partners in schools and communities across the nation committed to using collaborative approaches to provide a safe and engaging learning environment for all students. The report presents policy statements to guide multidisciplinary approaches to meet the needs of both youth and educators while addressing student misbehavior and strategies that explain how to implement these policies. The recommendations presented in this report represent the collective input from more than 100 advisors, parents and youth and approximately 600 additional practitioners, researchers, policymakers and agents of change.
The goal of this report was to provide real-world approaches to school discipline practices, based on the latest research and taking into account the context in which policies and practices are developed as well as examples of how communities are putting into effect the proposed changes.
