In-School Suspension (ISS) is a common feature of the discipline program in most secondary schools. Many ISS programs are set up solely as a location in which to house students with discipline referrals; however, the most effective ISS programs are designed to teach socially appropriate behaviors. The most important goal of any discipline program should be to change unwanted student behavior. ISS programs can accomplish this objective when the program is appropriately designed to be an effective part of the school’s overall discipline plan.
