AACPS singled out for positive discipline intervention

LogoHomeAnne Arundel County Public Schools’ approach to student discipline is among 10 models across the country that other school districts should follow, a national study has found.

Public school administrators have recently begun re-evaluating and reconsidering earlier models of disciplinary actions for students who get into trouble during the school day. “Zero tolerance” and “three strike” type policies created a response for consistent and uniform punishment for students.
