Collaboration inside the building and with other middle schools and weekly analysis of discipline data provide the backbone of the changes David Nieslanik and his team are making in his first year as principal at Highland Park, a Beaverton middle school with a 40 percent minority population.
"Where we are in our understanding is that we want to keep kids in school. The eight middle schools in the Beaverton district are committed to this. In our monthly meetings, we always talk about problems of practice around discipline. We share data, celebrate successes, and talk about what we can do better."-David Nieslanik One of the approaches Nieslanik and his Highland Park team follow is to track student discipline data in real time. Each week the school's academic team (principal, vice principal, and student manager), look at data on attendance, academic success (or struggles), and behavioral patterns. When they see an emerging issue, they are able to mobilize quickly and work not just with students and teachers but with anyone in the extended school community who can contribute to a solution. "We had 389 referrals the year I arrived at Highland Park as an assistant principal three years ago, and the two most utilized consequences were out-of-school suspension and detention at 86 percent," Nieslanik says. Highland Park has seen a jump in the number of seventh-grade students meeting reading and math benchmarks, and Nieslanik makes the connection between academic proficiency and improvements in school climate. "It ties to the work we're doing," he says. "It hasn't been easy to change the policy that's been in place for so long," Nieslanik says. "Staff buy in is there, though there have been growing pains. We work with teachers so they feel they have a voice and are safe. I am also lucky to have seven peers at the district's other middle schools committed to the work." Nieslanik also keeps in sight the connection between discipline and social justice. "Kids are not pulling themselves out of the system," he says.

David Nieslanik teaches European History and Social Studies at Beaverton High School.
He said each hour of class time with his students is crucial. At the end of the year, his students put together final projects. He said he fears reducing days could compromise those projects, which he said are a culmination of the year. "It would be a definite strain," Nieslanik said.
