The Findlay School District is going to work with an area agency to identify children who are misbehaving at an earlier age, and attempt to get them help. The Courier reports the district will use the Family Resource Center’s “Wrap Around” program. The program brings together students demonstrating “aggressive” behavior, their parents, teachers, and counselors to talk about classroom issues. It will be applied in kids in Kindergarten through the third grade.
Superintendent Ed Kurt says students with behavior issues are normally identified at the middle school level. This program aims to get them help earlier. Kurt adds the need for discipline has increased at the elementary level. Some of the situations have been more severe than they have been in the past.
Aggressive behavior doesn’t necessarily mean aggression toward other students. It can be things like running out of the classroom, throwing things, and refusing to listen to teachers.
