CMCD is an innovative school-wide (Pre-K – 12) school-tested, research-validated, teacher approved classroom instructional management program that builds on shared responsibility for learning and classroom organization between teachers and students. CMCD builds self-discipline in students through teacher and student consistency in classrooms and throughout the school. The Consistency Management & Cooperative Discipline program is designed to help students prepare for success, achieve self-discipline, and develop responsibility.
