Closing in on it means changes in discipline.
The task force recommends better training for all staff, especially on how to prevent bullying.
There also needs to be more equity in discipline and students should sign a no bullying pledge.

To do that, the committee recommends increased hallway supervision and more security at the middle and high school levels. [GRAPHIC 2]

The committee wants to see more teacher involvement particularly at the middle school level and additional guidance counselors.
They also stress there needs to be more parental involvement.

A situation the committee believes could get better if Roanoke City develops more alternative education programs for serious offenders.
Smaller schools would also help. [GRAPHIC 3]
The report recommends equalizing the student population at the two high schools and that may mean redistricting.
These are recommendations task force members hope city leaders and the community take seriously.
