Because of our unique approach to deeper learning and our focus on social-emotional learning, we take a different approach to discipline than most schools do. We believe that it is part of our job to facilitate growth in the area of learning self-direction and discipline. Social-emotional learning is even included in our Individualized Learning Plans (ILPs), Learner-Led Conferences (LLCs), and Reports of Progress. Each of our learners is different, as are the challenges they face. Therefore, the consequences of choices that negatively affect those around a learner are naturally related and come with discussion and context. We have thoroughly researched the best approaches and philosophies to align with our mission. We are not fans of punishments and rewards. While we emphasize Love and Logic literature, we also recommend the following books. You can learn more in our Parent University workshops.
