I met Tony and Jeff at the state principals' conference. Once I heard their ideas and understood their passion, I knew I wanted to learn more about Common Threads. After getting my leadership team trained, we saw immediate results in our overall effectiveness and productivity. This is by far one of the most succinct and user-friendly systems that I have seen for investigating. -- Jonathan Ross, principal, Lionville Middle School, 2009 Pennsylvania National Distinguished Principal
Common Threads provides school administrators with a practical framework for solving the daunting problems that exist in today's schools. This investigative approach helps to foster collaborative decision making, and most importantly, helps promote proactive decision making by students. The authors include a clear set of examples artfully designed to help nurture deep change in challenging settings. -- Allen C. Grant, Ph.D., director of educational leadership, Drexel University
As a middle school assistant principal, Common Threads is an indispensable tool that I practice daily. It is simple to use and enables me to synthesize the data in such a clear, organized way. As a result, I am better able to make good data-driven decisions and provide well-developed rationales for each. -- Geoff Mills, assistant principal, Peirce Middle School
This book acts as a guide for school administrators who want to be more proactive and systematic in handling even the most minor disciplinary infractions in schools. Authors Anthony Barber and Jeffrey Ulmer explain how administrators can be unbiased and practical when investigating disciplinary incidents, teacher misconduct, or conflicts with parents. Common Threads also includes practice disciplinary scenarios and sample incident reports. * District Administration *
