Positive Discipline Lab Schools are recognized for the intention to broadly implement Positive Discipline. Lab school teachers and staff have received training in Positive Discipline and work closely with a Positive Discipline Certified Trainer or Lead Trainer to support program development.  Positive Discipline activities for students are used to teach important academic, social and emotional skills. The Positive Discipline Class Meeting model provides integrated practice for students solving real life problems. Positive Discipline Parent Education is provided to support parents and caregivers.  Adlerian theory and practical application are intended to be felt throughout the culture and climate of the entire school.
