This study offers a way of designing a school wide discipline policy for an elementary school. Three components are necessary for successful design, implementation, and support. The first component is to involve as many staff members and parents as possible in making the decisions about the policy. The second component is to review current research pertaining to important components of a discipline policy. The third component is to review current discipline policies in use by effective schools. Next, design a discipline policy tailored to your building's specific needs. The result of this study is a discipline policy completed by an elementary school using the above three components.
