EDAD 555 Building Positive Climate--Policy and Practice

Content: In the past, school-wide zero-tolerance policies have focused mainly on reacting to specific student misbehavior by implementing punishment-based strategies. Research during the past 20 years has shown that school-wide behavior systems that are positively focused on desired behaviors can result in a substantive lifestyle impact for all members of a school community. This course will examine the systems-based approach for implementing culturally proficient, multi-tiered, school-wide behavior supports, and the critical role that school leaders have in building positive learning environments for each student.
