Dr. Randy Sprick: The Behavior Strike Zone

Posted on

sd2016header

School Discipline Conference Keynoter Dr. Randy Sprick believes educators should convey clear expectations of desired behaviors – by giving specific examples of behavior “balls and strikes.”

Watch Dr. Randy Sprick describe “The Behavior Strike Zone.”

PBIS Architect and Creator of the Safe & Civil Schools program, Dr. Sprick will deliver a plenary session entitled Reducing Barriers to Learning within a Multi-Tiered System of Support at the School Discipline Conference in Atlanta and Toronto.  He will also present a keynote session entitled Teacher’s Encyclopedia of Behavior Management: 100 Problems/500 Plans for School Discipline Conference attendees.

The 2016 School Discipline Conference will focus on a variety of issues in school discipline and classroom management.  It will be a must-attend gathering for principals, deans, teachers and counselors focused on improving academic performance by applying the most current innovations and research to behavior intervention and classroom management. Special focus will be given to supportive, non-exclusionary disciplinary practices.
