This fourth Webinar in the 2014 SSD Webinar Series, Guiding Principle 2: Clear, Appropriate, and Consistent Expectations and Consequences, provided an in-depth review of Guiding Principle #2 as outlined within the Guiding Principles: A Resource Guide for Improving School Climate and Discipline, a key document in the recently released package. In particular, it walked through each Action Step identified for Principle #2 implementation, including exploring how each are being implemented by an expert panel of practitioners. These content experts bring deep knowledge of the practical realities associated with integrating Principle #2 strategies into current practice.
The Webinar also included a "tracking guide" that will allow participants to complete a short self-assessment aligned with the Action Steps of Guiding Principle #2 and a list of related resources to support effective implementation.
