"Proud Professionals Educating Schools​"


​​PPES School-Wide Discipline Program

Without order in the classroom, teachers can’t teach, and students can’t learn.  PPES School Wide Discipline Program was designed to help schools establish and maintain order.  Developed by Dr. Phyllis A. Porter, PPESSDP works by attempting to increase student motivation and self-discipline, equipping students to share in the responsibility for classroom management and discipline.  Program materials also emphasize that PPESSDP is “not a packaged discipline program—one size does not fit all. 

Type of Model

Discipline & Classroom Management

Grades Covered                 

Grades K - 12 General and Special Education Students


Dean of Students (Optional)            

The on-site dean of students will oversee the entire Discipline Program and will play a key role in maintaining a positive and inclusive school culture. The Dean will also take a leadership role in implementing and enhancing the Discipline Program, including In-School Suspension, Detention, and the Teacher/Student/Parent Recognition Program.

Restorative Justice Facilitator  (Optional)

An on-site restorative justice facilitator will guide the Restorative Justice Program, fostering a supportive environment that focuses on repairing harm, building connections, and promoting personal growth. 

Curriculum Material

PPESSDP is not an academic program and provides little in the way of student curricula.  However, the program does contain components that may be used to help teach life skills and strengthen students’ reading, writing, critical thinking, conflict resolution, and math skills.  All material will be provided by PPES.

Instructional Support/Professional Development 

PPESSDP includes four phases of professional development:  awareness, implementation, follow-up, and sustaining support. The implementation phase typically consists of two on-site training sessions led by PPES staff prior to implementation.  These are held in August and October, followed by two additional sessions, usually held in January and April.  Sustaining support is provided in years two and three, during which an orientation training session and occasional workshops are provided to new teachers.
