The development of effective systems for school discipline requires a broad set of resources. The intent of this guidance document is to support schools in their movement towards more effective, evidence-based methods of behavior management and school discipline for all students. These considerations are offered for staff at the classroom level (see individual and classroom level response) as well as administrators at the school and district level (see school and district response). This document was developed by the Indiana Resource Network (IRN).
