Supporting Students at David Cameron
The goal of the discipline model used at David Cameron Elementary School is to support student growth in the area of Social Responsibility. It is hoped that through a program based on the principles of both restitution and restorative practices students will develop an understanding of how to meet their personal needs while maintaining the global needs of the school.

Teaching the global and personal needs and providing students with opportunities to practice appropriate ways to meet these needs provides the foundation for this model. When problems arise students will be asked to; describe what personal need they were trying to meet, identify more appropriate ways of meeting these needs, describing who has been effected by their actions and make a plan on how they will make it right.

Supporting growth in social responsibility is shared by many partners including; students, staff, families, school district and community agencies. Establishing common language and open communication between the stakeholders will help to ensure growth in this area.
