The School Leader's Guide to Restorative School Discipline provides a research-based and field-tested model for school discipline that supports and augments the principal’s primary duty: to support the education of all students, including those who exhibit behavioural challenges.

The authors introduce and explain the latest research on educative discipline, provide a comprehensive discipline plan for secondary schools, and outline how this plan should be supported and sustained through teacher support teams. Whether a principal is aiming to develop a school discipline plan from the ground up or augment their existing model, this book will help administrators develop a cohesive and effective discipline program that promotes and facilitates student learning.
