Discipline, Suspensions, and Expulsions

Discipline, Suspensions, and Expulsions

Wisconsin public schools have a responsibility to ensure schools are safe places to learn. The Department of Public Instruction provides consultation, technical assistance, and resources to support schools in this endeavor and reduce the need for reactive discipline that excludes students from school.

The Department of Public Instruction funds the Wisconsin Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Network through the Cooperative Educational Services Agencies (CESAs). The Wisconsin PBIS Network provides support and technical assistance to schools in implementing and sustaining PBIS.

Below are Department of Public Instruction publications and other resources to support schools' efforts to provide safe learning environments.
