juvenile justice reform act 1225
  • 79 of the 143 legislators co-authored this bill that was unanimously passed

“The legislature hereby finds and declares that:

  • the good behavior and discipline of students are essential prerequisites to academic learning, the development of student character, and the general, as well as educational, socialization of children and youth.
  • Bad behavior and lack of discipline in many schools of the state are impairing the quality of teaching, learning, character development, and, in some schools, are creating real and potential threats to school and public safety.
jjra 1225 continued
  • Subpart C-1 The Education/Juvenile Justice Partnership Act legislated that:
      • BESE would formulate, develop and recommend a Model Master Plan for improving behavior and discipline within schools that includes the utilization of positive behavioral supports and other effective disciplinary tools
      • each city, parish, and other local public school board should be responsible for the develop of school master plans for supporting student behavior and discipline based upon the model master plan developed and approved by BESE
what is it
What is it?
  • It's the thing most likely to drive a new teacher from the classroom. It's been known to sabotage well-planned lessons and turn teachable moments into a complete waste of time. It's also fingered as a root cause of low test scores, academic underachievement, poor school morale, and violence.
  • Surveys in recent years have consistently reported that large numbers of young teachers who abandon the field cite classroom management as one of the top reasons for leaving.
