Progressive Discipline is a strategy within a Whole School Approach that promotes positive student behaviour and enables the school administrator to choose from a continuum of interventions and supports to address inappropriate student behaviour. Positive student behaviour is promoted at school by helping students make good choices.
Progressive Discipline has several important elements, including:
- Engaging parents — ongoing dialogue with parents about students’ achievement and behaviour
- Helping students learn — students have opportunities to learn from the choices they make
- Offering supports — early intervention and on-going support for students is critical
Schools help prevent inappropriate behaviour by implementing pro-active programs such as bullying prevention and intervention, character education and citizenship development.
