This chapter describes the four high schools, in two states, that are the focus of this study. It discusses the communities in which these schools are located, the student demographics, school characteristics, and the policies and practices each school has implemented to detect and punish misbehaving students. The schools in question are Unionville High, Centerville High, Frontera High, and Fairway Estates High. Though these schools vary in economic status, communities, and student bodies, they all have remarkably similar security and punishment practices. Each school has even partnered with a police officer to facilitate security and participate in school discipline. All four schools govern through crime in a way that is surprisingly consistent, given the distinctions one would expect to see among schools located in different areas.

Keywords:   Unionville High, Centerville High, Frontera High, Fairway Estates High, security practices, school discipline, student demographics
