Fewer discipline referrals means more time on task
administrators, and students. Project Wisdom reduces
A key finding of our third-party evaluation indicates
- The program helps decrease discipline
referrals to the office.
67% of those surveyed agreed.
"About 50% lower numbers of referrals this
year compared to last year." Rose Marie
Biddle, Counselor, Denton Elementary School, Denton,
"We are now in year two of using Project Wisdom,
and we have cut our office referrals for discipline
in HALF over the last two years. I believe that
Project Wisdom has been a big part of that reduction.
The Words of Wisdom message to start off the day creates
a positive building climate." Gary Foulke, Principal,
Overbrook Attendance Center, Overbrook, KS
"Discipline referrals are almost nonexistent at this
point in a K-5 elementary school. When they do occur,
the students and their teachers and I are able to share
a common language, as we frequently reference the message
of the day. Often, the children offer that reference first!"
Janine Lavery, Principal, Alleghany Avenue School,
"Teachers are more confident in dealing with student issues
and can use the program as a springboard for discussions.
Referrals have decreased by 10% since the beginning of
the year." Sue Hildebrand, Thornton Elementary
School, Temple, TX
