The development of a behaviour management plan
The purpose of this research was to develop a behaviour management plan and to adopt a process by which this could be achieved. Behaviour management is an area of specialisation receiving increased attention. Schools in Queensland are required to develop a behaviour management plan by the end of 1994. The case study school was a small, rural primary school situated in the Sunshine Coast region of Queensland. The school community comprised of 143 students, one teaching principal, six teachers, five ancillary staff and 100 parents. All sections of the school community were represented in the study including 50% of the parents who responded to a survey during the process of the development of the plan. The process of the development of the plan and the plan itself could be adapted for other schools to use. The researcher facilitated an action research model, beginning with local issues and involving the participants in a reflection on their own practice. The process presented in this study encourages school communities to develop their behaviour management plans through action research.
