Discipline Foundation Policy (DFP)The Los Angeles Unified School District is committed to providing safe classrooms and healthy environments conducive to learning and free from disruption for all students.
Every student has the right to be educated in environments that support all aspects of their well-being. Every educator has the right to teach and every employee has the right to work in an atmosphere free from disruption and obstacles that impede learning. The Discipline Foundation Policy establishes a consistent framework for developing, refining, and implementing a culture of discipline built on positive behavior interventions at all schools.
On February 14, 2014 the District published Bulletin 6231.0 Discipline Foundation School-Wide Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (SWPBIS). This document introduced the changes to the policy, and provided a framework for incorporating additional requirements through the Board Resolution, School Discipline, and School Climate Bill of Rights adopted on May 13, 2013.
Traditional models of school discipline tend to be reactive, often resulting in punitive consequences. The District’s Discipline Foundation Policy represents a proactive approach, one that promotes appropriate student behavior and increased learning. The key word is “approach.” The policy provides direction for developing a comprehensive system of support – not a one size fits all program – tailored to individual needs within a school community.
