Best Practices in School Discipline Workgroup


The MSDE Discipline Best Practices group consists of participants from local school systems as well as professional organizations representing school boards, superintendents, administration, student services, teachers, school resource officers, school climate initiatives, special education, early childhood, and professional development.

The purpose of this workgroup is to identify school discipline best practices and the professional development needs of teachers, administrators, and school resource officers to implement these practices.  The group shares a desire to produce a practical guideline that not only incorporates research but is user friendly and serves the needs of all stakeholders.

Janice Briscoe from Prince George’s county and Dr. Sally Dorman from MSDE are co-chairing the workgroup.  The Discipline Best Practices Group and the Code of Conduct Committee have aligned their timeline and efforts to conclude with a final report to the Maryland State Board of Education in January 2014.
