Only Two Discipline Referrals in Six Weeks!
“During my first two years as principal of Clark Street Elementary School, we experienced over 300 office referrals and over 150 out-of-school suspensions! This year we fully implemented the seminar strategies and so far we have only had two office referrals in six weeks!”

Decrease in Suspensions and Increase in Test Scores!
“Lawton Public Schools is a lower socioeconomic school district in Oklahoma that services 17,000 Pre-K through 12th grade students; over half of which are minority. Twenty-nine of our thirty-five schools were trained using these strategies, affecting more than 11,000 children. Following training, we experienced a 16% decrease in suspensions and office referrals, and a dramatic decrease in pupil enrollment for Behavior Intervention and Behavior Disorder classes. We have also seen a 9% increase in test scores and none of our schools are on the school improvement list for No Child Left Behind.”
- Billy Davis, Executive Director Elementary Education, Lawton Public Schools, Oklahoma
In-House Suspensions Cut in Half!
“Pioneer Continuation High School has our district’s highest number of at-risk 11th and 12th grade students. Using the seminar blueprint, we saw school suspensions drop from 39% to 18% over a three year period, in-house suspensions cut in half, and significant increases in passing rates on the California High School Exit Exam and other student achievement measures. Overall, the school has experienced a positive, systemic cultural change.”
- Elisabeth Prigmore, Principal, Pioneer Continuation High School, California
Students in Special Education and Title Programs Achieve Grade Level Performance!
“I have seen some of my students move up from Special Education and Title Programs to achieve at grade level performance. My referrals have been eliminated. Students that were never able to do so before are now meeting benchmark standards and making dramatic gains in reading and writing fluency. After 19 years as an educator, I finally have time to teach with care and compassion.”
- Libba Sager, Elementary Teacher, Toledo Elementary, Oregon

“We have used the Time To Teach strategies for eighteen years! These strategies allowed me to get into the classrooms and help teachers instead of having to deal with a line of students awaiting discipline intervention. Time To Teach truly delivers on its promise to gain back valuable teaching time that is so often lost to matters of discipline.”
