"As a school psychologist I have worked with Larry Thompson at Youthville and Hesston High School. Larry has implemented one of the few district wide behavior management programs that I have observed in the past 29 years that actually works."
Randy Zohn M.S., NCSP
"Larry places the student at the heart of every presentation. Those in attendance walk away with practical applications to use immediately in their classrooms. You will walk away refreshed and feel great about the role you can play in the lives of students!"
Amy Wagoner, Principal, Holy Cross
"Larry Thompson's discipline system has changed our school culture. Our office referrals are down by 50 percent and I am having the best conversations about discipline with students and parents since I became a principal."
Keith Hall, Principal, Stockton High
Over the past seven years, the Responsibility-Centered Discipline program has produced remarkable results as it has been implemented across North America. To be certain, RCD schools have seen significant decreases in office referrals, detentions and suspensions. But RCD schools have also moved away from an obedience-based model to a model that is centered on students taking responsibility for their own behavior as well as their own academic success.
As schools drive toward improving academic results, educators have become far more purposeful in enhancing curriculum, refining assessment and enriching instruction. But without improving classroom management, all of these other efforts will ultimately fall short of expectations.
Educators understand that behavior and effort are often impacted by the relationships they have built with students. When emotions escalate, those relationships are tested — and often damaged. Responsibility- Centered Discipline helps educators to be prepared when situations come to a boil. By empowering educators to become masters of challenging moments, RCD schools typically see a significant improvement not only in behavior management, but also in school climate, student and teacher satisfaction – and ultimately academic success.
The mission of Responsibility-Centered Discipline's program is to help schools build systems that help kids learn to take responsibility for their behaviors, and thus, create an environment that brings the best out of everyone. The data speaks for itself and the results are real.
