Warren City Schools trying to reduce bad behavior with suspension intervention

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - Hundreds of Warren City School leaders met with nearly 500 students and parents on Monday to discuss a new program that will be implemented this fall for tackling student behavioral issues.

Once they take a seat on the bus, students are in the district's care. Four resource officers will resume their duties looking over each school building.

Their roles and school safety plans were reviewed this summer with the city's new police chief.

For students who exhibit behavior that crosses the line, this year they could be place in a skill and support classroom.

"We're trying to eliminate and reduce our in-school and out-of-school suspensions and provide some interventions to our kids, behavior-wise," says Warren Superintendent Michael Notar.

It's not just suspension prevention. The school system believes getting to the root of a students' troubles may be the key to unlocking how to help.

"Our job is to get to the core of the reason, so once we find that, we know with our youth sometimes they keep a lot of things inside. So this is an opportunity for them to share it," Notar says.
