The purpose of this study was to track student discipline referrals throughout the school year in order to provide additional support to those students who exhibited a pattern of having discipline issues. Students were identified based on the number of infractions they had and then they were targeted and received additional support from the researcher. The researcher compiled a list of the students and met with them regularly in order to establish a relationship with them. Through such a relationship, some students' discipline referral write-ups decreased; others continued to break the school rules. However, all students benefited from such a relationship since the relationship was not one of student-disciplinarian; instead, it was one of student-mentor.
