Hello, my name is Branden Calloway and I am the School Culture Facilitator for Edison Elementary School. My role as an Edison School Culture Facilitator is to significantly decrease the amount of time students spend out of school due to disciplinary infractions and to manage the In-School Suspension (ISS) Program. This is an alternative to out of school suspensions where students often fall farther behind classroom assignments, create a pattern of truancy, and often are more disruptive when they return from out of school suspension. This strategy allows the student to maintain the completion of assignments and stay connected to the learning environment yet be removed from the classroom because of their behavior. Under the new Code of Conduct, if in school suspensions are not properly addressing negative decisions, then out of school suspensions can be used and referrals can now be made to our new high school alternative school.
