The purpose of this internship was to provide the intern with an opportunity to acquire and utilize professional administrative skills necessary to become a successful school leader.
The internship at William Davies Middle school included the implementation of the PRO plan, a discipline strategy designed to reduce the amount of discipline referrals.
The PRO plan included three main elements: 1) the institution of a teacher-mentor program, 2) the utilization of the Project Success Program and 3) the development of a school discipline committee.
The results of the PRO plan included a forty-three percent reduction of discipline referrals. Additionally, there was a twenty percent reduction in administrative detentions, internal suspensions and external suspensions.
