Overall the number of children having to be suspended from school for breaking the rules at Lebanon R-3 School District was down during the past school year.

Though some schools increased the number of incidents requiring out of school suspension, overall the district was down by 50 incidents for the 2012-2013 school year. In total, 327 incidents led to children getting taken out of school for various amounts of time. The year before, there were 372 incidents, according to information Assistant Superintendent Dr. Brad Armstrong divulged to the Lebanon R-3 Board of Education on Tuesday evening.

"Overall, it was a positive year again in terms of our discipline," Armstrong said. He added that Lebanon is a leader in using a positive behavior support system that is recognized across the state. All of the district's buildings were rewarded at least silver awards. Boswell and the Lebanon High School will be awarded gold awards for their achievement in the system.

"There aren't very many high schools in the state that even get recognized, much less get a gold award, so that says a lot for our administrators, our students and staff," Armstrong said.
