Culver Community Schools Working on a ‘More Proactive Approach to Discipline’

The Culver Community Schools Corporation is overhauling its student discipline system. “We are working on a trauma-recognized discipline system that all our teachers are being trained on,” Superintendent Karen Shuman says, “in order to help offset any type of negative consequences for discipline in more of a proactive approach to discipline.”

Meanwhile, Shuman says ALICE training was held for elementary and middle school students last week. The ALICE procedure – which stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate – is designed to be a proactive approach to responding to armed intruders. Shuman says school officials feel very comfortable in what they have done to prepare students for that type of event.
