How We Make a Difference

Our Vision

Sound Discipline is working for a world where children know they belong, and can learn and thrive.

Our Mission

Sound Discipline partners with educators, organizations, and families to transform schools into equitable learning communities.

Our Approach

District Partnership Venn DiagramWe bring together science-based, trauma-informed, restorative, and Positive Discipline practices to facilitate change in the ways adults see and respond to youth.

Courageous Educators: We facilitate school leaders and educators to build classroom communities and model an inclusive culture school-wide that promotes student agency and well-being.

Equitable School Systems: We coach administrators and educators to use data to identify and implement solutions that address damaging systemic patterns of inequity that target Black and brown students.

Connected Families: We train and coach families and caregivers in a child’s life to apply solution-oriented practices that instill critical social emotional life skills.


In addition to partnering with schools and districts, we offer workshops and consulting services for youth-serving organizations and adults seeking trauma-informed, practical, data-driven mindset and systems change.
