Description

Revitalizing Education: Exploring Alternative Discipline Practices for Homeless K-12 Students

This capstone presentation focuses on the impact of traditional discipline practices on homeless K-12 students. The research analyzes current discipline methods, proposes a conceptual framework, and suggests training for school personnel to enhance social-emotional and educational outcomes for this population.

The capstone project consists of three products. The first is a systematic literature review that examines traditional and alternative disciplinary practices to address the unique challenges faced by homeless K-12 students. The second product is a conceptual paper proposing a novel framework that integrates Family Systems Theory (FST) and Critical Race Theory (CRT) to implement disciplinary measures. The last product is a practice application paper emphasizing specialized training for school administrators. The training focuses on trauma-informed practices, restorative justice practices, and Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). The ultimate goal is to promote fairness, inclusivity, and positive outcomes by personalizing disciplinary approaches to the specific needs of homeless students in the K-12 educational setting.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the unique challenges faced by homeless K-12 students in accessing education and the impact of traditional discipline practices on their academic success.
  2. Examine the role of trauma-informed practices, restorative justice practices, and positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) in addressing behavioral issues among homeless K-12 students and promoting a supportive learning environment.
  3. Explore the need for school personnel training regarding positive, trauma-informed, restorative justice discipline practices with homeless K-12 students.
