At the Monday Leon County Schools (LCS) Board Agenda Review meeting, Board member Rosanne Wood inquired about highlighting schools that have successfully implemented strategies that resulted in a decline in discipline measures like suspensions.
Ms. Wood stated that her idea is to focus on praising those schools that have used innovative strategies in addressing discipline issues.
Board member Rasmussen cautioned that the improvement in discipline should be clearly due to administrative action and not because the schools are not enforcing rules.
Board member Darryl Jones added that the approach will identify best practices that could be implemented in other schools.
Based on the direction from the Board, LCS staff will develop a plan to implement Ms. Wood’s recommendation.
