Policy JDB- Corporal Punishment- has been rescinded by the CMSD School Board, which means that corporal punishment shall not be used as a means of discipline in any Columbus Municipal School District Pk-12 school.
Positive Behavior Support and Intervention to Replace Corporal Punishment:
- Each school will implement components of Renaissance into their school culture/plan to foster positive relationships.
- Each school will implement a token economy to reward positive student behavior.
- Each school will ensure full implementation of the MTSS/Intervention process to support academics and behavior.
- Each school will partner with parents to support a positive learning environment and positive behavior.
