The Coyote Code
Among the most important advances in student discipline procedures over the past decade is recognition of the need for school-wide behavior support systems. Historically, discipline in schools has been driven by attention to specific children with problem behaviors. This continues to be an essential component of school policy; however, a major advance has occurred through recent efforts to define proactive, school-wide systems of support. The goals of school-wide systems are to define, teach, and sup-port appropriate behaviors in a way that establishes a culture of competence within schools. When a competent culture is established the students are more likely to support appropriate behavior and discourage inappropriate behavior by their peers.
