Discipline with Dignity is a flexible program for effective school and classroom management that teaches responsible thinking, cooperation, and shared decision-making. Our program helps teachers learn how to build relationships, responsibility and respect in your classroom.
Discipline with Dignity equips teachers and administrators with classroom skills and techniques that enable them to spend less time dealing with behavioral problems and more time on positive interactions with students and on instruction.
Discipline with Dignity presents teachers with the framework, tools, and skills, for carrying out their own effective classroom management. It furnishes administrators with information and a basis for setting school-wide policy. Designed to allow teachers more time for instruction in a classroom environment conducive to learning, this approach also helps children develop a sense of self-esteem and gives them the encouragement and tools necessary for making responsible decisions in their lives, both inside and outside of the classroom.
Discipline with Dignity has been applied in classrooms throughout the world. The programs popularity stems from the outstanding results obtained by K-12 teachers, principals, counselors, parents and others who work with children. Discipline with Dignity is an insightful, motivating and practical approach that can be adapted to fit the needs of any district, school or community.
