Implement programs to improve students' classroom behavior and social skills.
Students who are frequently absent, disengaged, act out, and/or who are withdrawn may benefit from social-emotional supports to help them learn how to interact and communicate positively and consider long-term consequences. These students may also benefit from targeted academic support and an adult advocate.
These kinds of skills can lead to fewer problems with disruptive behavior in and out of the classroom. Programs to develop skills can be implemented by teachers, mentors, or other adult advocates. These programs often include components such as recognizing progress toward goals, teaching problem-solving and decision-making skills, establishing partnerships with community-based programs, and offering activities that require students to take on new responsibilities and interact with classmates.
