Discipline With Purpose

Discipline With Purpose (DWP)

The ultimate goal of our discipline code is that students develop self-discipline. In order to achieve this, the faculty has adopted Discipline With Purpose (DWP), a developmental approach to teaching self-discipline.  Rules are established and posted throughout the school and are used throughout the entire school community. Good behavior is reinforced and inappropriate behavior has its consequences.
This program focuses on the task of learning self-discipline behaviors through the teaching of 15 self-discipline skills. These skills are used, instead of personality traits, as the standard for evaluation of behaviors and bringing about constructive change. DWP accommodates all facets of the whole person: physical, social, spiritual, moral, intellectual, and emotional.

Teachers will use strategies in teaching these self-discipline skills within their classroom and throughout the curriculum.  Skills are taught to children like any other curriculum during appropriate periods of their growth and development.  When individuals agree on the behaviors expected of a self-disciplined person, they establish a framework for decision making and conflict resolution.

The 15 Self-Discipline Skills outlined in DWP are:
  • Basic (Taught to grades K-2)
  • Can listen
  • Can follow instructions
  • Can ask questions when something is not understood
  • Can share
  • Can be trained in essentials of social skills
  • Constructive (Taught to grades 3-5)
  • Can work cooperatively with others
  • Can understand and explain the reason for rules
  • Can select and develop procedures for accomplishing an objective
  • Can be trained to be a leader
  • Can learn the essentials of good communication skills
  • Generative (Taught to grades 6-8)
  • Can set their own schedules and time limits
  • Can work together to resolve problems
  • Can take the initiative to resolve problems of mutual concern
  • Can distinguish fact from feeling
  • Can sacrifice from a motive of love
