    students are consistently involved in disruptive behaviors. 3. Reading suggests that school-wide classroom management programs are successful in minimizing disruptions, thereby enhancing the learning environment for all students.

A survey of teachers at one junior high school will be conducted to determine the actual  extent of student disruptions in the classroom. Outcomes Students disruptions will be reduced by 75 percent. Causes 1. A school-wide classroom management program does not exist. 2. Students identified  with learning disabilities are distractible. They may or may not be responsible for the majority of the disruptions. 3. Teachers are not consistent in implementing their discipline processes, if they  have one. Solutions 1. Design, develop and implement a school-wide classroom management program specifically to reduce student disruptions. 2. Make adjustments for students with special needs. B. A  Questionnaire will be used to survey each teacher in the school for the purpose of obtaining information about the problem. 1. The survey will validate the seriousness of the  problem. 2. The survey will identify the most frequent types of disruptive behaviors. 3. The survey will lead to insight regarding which students are consistently involved in disruptive behaviors throughout  their classes.
