ISS Mission Statement:
“Improve student behavior to improve academic achievement.”
Program Description:
In-school suspension is an alternative form of discipline to which a student may be assigned in lieu of out-of-school suspension. ISS provides a supervised environment in which students’ academic progress and behavior are monitored. ISS overcomes the major shortcomings of traditional suspension because it does not deprive students of the educational experience and allows students to continue with academic instruction and completion of assignments.
Program Goals:
            •To increase student achievement.
            •To improve student behavior.
            •To reduce out-of-school suspensions.
            •To reduce classroom disruptions.
