Principals: Behavior Management

Principals: Behavior Management

Administrators and teachers face a different set of rules in using disciplinary procedures with students with disabilities who are protected by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Since principals ensure that the learning environment is calm and safe for everyone, it's important that they know how to manage inappropriate behaviors in their schools. This course is designed to review when and how to apply these different rules to discipline students and stay within the law. Topics covered include functional behavioral assessments, behavior intervention plans and rules surrounding long-term suspensions.
