If you are responsible for procedures and capturing data, the process of adjustment can feel overwhelming, writes Chris Holden in the third installment from our blog series on behaviour management.
Your procedures don’t work. They don’t work because you are using paper to record and report incidents. Even if you’re not, your procedures don’t work because your teachers are using Microsoft Word to record incidents, which is the same thing, just neater.

You have the sense that behaviour in your college is the worst it’s been in years, but you have no real idea what’s going on. You’re probably blaming demographics or muttering colloquialisms like, “There’s something in the water.” There’s not. There’s nothing in the water.
