RISC Teacher / CoordinatorExt: 24-020Welcome to the RISC ROOM
William C. McGinnis’ “Remedy through Integrity, Structure and Counseling” (RISC) program has been designed by teachers, guidance counselors and social workers as an alternative to Out of School Suspension or traditional In School Suspension. Numerous studies have shown that, in order for a school to decrease its number of school suspensions, there needs to be a behavior program in place that is more constructive than punitive.
Our program has been adapted and modified to include the concepts and strategies from the Positive Outcome Program (POP) with these Essential Components:
- A focus on positive expectations and behaviors
- Character education
- Encouraging/Teaching expected behaviors
- Discouraging unwanted behaviors
- Positive Academic & Social Outcomes
Through various exercises, assignments, and discussions, students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own actions and become productive and positive members of our community.PLEASE CLICK HERE TO VISIT THE OFFICIAL RISC ROOM WEBSITE for complete information.
