School-Wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS).
One of the foremost advancements in school-wide discipline over the last 20 years has been the innovation of school-wide systems of support. PBIS is a scientifically researched and evidence-based practice. This means that it has been demonstrated to measurably:
- Reduce classroom disruptions and office referrals
- Increase student academic achievement
- Improve school climate and safety
Graduate Course in PBIS
Our own Dr. Gulchak has been adjunct faculty at Northern Arizona University and teaching ESE 502 School-wide Behavior Management since 2008. The fall semester begins 8/27/2012, so there is still time to register for either graduate credit or to audit it for certificate hours. But ACT NOW!
Register and get more information from the NAU SELECT program.
You can also see the Fall 2012 Schedule here.
Dr. Gulchak also teaches ESE 506 Disability Law beginning 10/22/12. This is a special education law course that will inform you about discipline law and all the changes that have come about since Public Law 94-142 first passed in 1974. There is a lot more to SPED law then FAPE, LRE, IEP’s, and Due Process. (And a lot more acronyms too!).
The US. Department of Education just released a resource document on creating practices and policies regarding the framework for implementing Restraint and Seclusion in schools (5/15/12). Download it here.
“As education leaders, our first responsibility must be to make sure that schools foster learning in a safe environment for all of our children and teachers…I believe this document is an important step toward this goal. I also want to salute leaders in Congress for their vigilance on this issue.” - U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan
According to Ed.gov:
The purpose of this resource document is to present and describe 15 principles for state, district, and school staff; parents; and other stakeholders to consider when states, localities, and districts develop policies and procedures which should be in writing on the use of restraint and seclusion. This resource document discusses the context within which these principles were developed, lists the principles, and highlights the current state of practice and implementation considerations for each principle.
Additionally, this document provides a synopsis of ongoing efforts by federal agencies to address national concerns about using restraint and seclusion in schools. Two attachments at the end of this document provide information about state policies on the use of restraint and seclusion in our nation’s public schools and an annotated resource guide on the use of restraint and seclusion in schools.
