PBIS/RDP School-Wide Discipline 
A positive, consistent school-wide climate can eliminate many of the discipline problems which occur in schools. Some critical elements of a positive and safe school climate are developing school-wide rules and expectations, actively teaching all students these rules and expectations, ensuring adequate teacher supervision, recognizing when students follow the rules, and correcting and re-teaching the rules that have already been taught.
