"Although hallway behavior and arriving to class on time have been the main focus of the process, other indicators suggest that the change may not be limited to tardiness. For instance, up to this point in time last year, the school made 24 referrals to the Disciplinary Alternative Education Placement (DAEP). To date this year, they have sent 15. Last year 26 percent of students sent to DAEP from our district's eight intermediate schools came from our school. As of the end of the first semester this year, only 8 percent of intermediate school students at DAEP were from there. They have seen a decrease in DAEP referrals this year, while many of our other intermediate schools have not."
