Tom Schimmer shares five guiding principles for Effective School-Wide Discipline in his article posted February 7, 2013.  He starts out by stating that effective schools take a thoughtful approach to student discipline.  He says increasing overall level of student engagement will reduce negative behaviors.  The principles are as follows:

1. Every school-wide discipline plan is designed to be an instrument of support and inclusion, not removal and isolation.

2. Be clear about expected behaviors and what success can/should look like.

3. Be reasonable, consistent, and air when responding to inappropriate behaviors.

4. Pre-correct for anticipated behavioral errors.

5. Respect the uniqueness of each student, each incident, and each set of circumstances.

 

I really wanted to include this article because discipline in the schools is not limited to just the classroom.  The culture of the schools sets the tone for the way students and teachers act.  I appreciate how the said schools have to be thoughtful about how they approach discipline.  As soon as discipline becomes an after thought, students will get reckless.  Principles four and five stood out the most to me.  I think good schools anticipate when bad behavior might occur, not because they think their student are bad but simply through years of experience dealing with such things.  Pre-correcting or letting the student know that this is not the expectations and spelling out the consequences is a great way to minimize bad behavior in one fell swoop.  The fifth concept of uniqueness is really important to me.  Each child is different and there is never a one size fits all discipline policy and procedure.  Circumstances and motivation are always different and each incident should be considered individually.  It's important to have the school wide discipline policies act as support and aid to the teachers’ policies in the classroom, I feel they should never be in conflict.  This was my only curated sources that dealt with school-wide discipline, but I think some of the other principles outlined in the other items curated would work on a school wide level, too.
