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 site does not fit all.
Type of Model
Discipline & Classroom Management
Grades K - 12 General and Special Education Students
On-site Disciplinarian, five (5) days a week. Disciplinarian will oversee entire Discipline Program which includes In-School Suspension, Detention and Teacher/Student/Parent Recognition Program.
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 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 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.
Cost of Implementation
Price varies depending on size of the school. Costs for initial implementation for a school of about 400-500 students, are estimated at roughly $50,000 per year.
