To assure classroom management is based on positive behavioral supports & effective disciplinary tools, schools will:

Establish/use school-based leadership teams to meet on regularly scheduled basis to review data & guide positive behavior process.

Leadership team (to extent possible) includes representatives of school administration, regular/special education teachers, parents, guidance counselors, and school bus operators; may also include other groups, e.g., food services workers, etc
