The ESC Region 11 Behavior and Discipline believes in the theory that behavior is learned, and therefore changeable through the use of systematically applied interventions based on data analysis of the problem behavior.In addition, we support the behavioral principals founded by Randy Sprick and Safe and Civil Schools that:
- Behavior is learned.
- Behavior can be changed.
- Lasting behavioral change is more likely with positive, rather than punitive, techniques.
- No student should be intentionally or unintentionally humiliated or belittled.
