Daily Behavior Folder
Teachers should record daily behavior in a take home folder. Parents should sign/initial the folder each night. Grade levels can choose to make weekly or monthly behavior calendars. At the end of the established period (week or month), the calendar should be removed from the daily former and filed in the students’ red folders. School-wide daily conduct grades should be assigned as follows:
E-Excellent S-Satisfactory N-Needs Improvement U-Unsatisfactory
Every student should have a red folder.
Red folders should be filed with cum folders at the end of each year.
Discipline referrals, letters home, daily behavior calendars, quarterly contact logs, and refocus and/or suspension paperwork from the office must be filed in the folder.
All students referred to the office for any type of inappropriate behavior, must be sent with a Discipline Referral in the student’s red folder. (Copy in Forms Section) This misconduct includes those behaviors which disrupt the orderly educational process in the classroom, the hall, the cafeteria, and/or school grounds. In each case, the seriousness of the offense, the academic placement, attitude and age of the student, the pattern of misconduct, and the degree of cooperation will be considered. The process is intended to be instructional and corrective, not punitive.
Student Behavior must be documented before a student can be sent to the office. Make sure that you have shown evidence that parent contact has been made prior to office referral. Contacts should be indicated on students’ Parent Contact Log:
Notes home to parent
Phone calls to parent
Students must come to the office with red folder and the incident must be recorded on Discipline Referral Form.
If a student comes to the office without the red folder and office referral, he/she will be sent back to the classroom.
The above steps may be skipped if the offense warrants (such as fighting). However, the red folder must be sent to the office soon after.
This period after the holidays is a very important time. ACT Aspire will be here before we know it. Instruction needs to be purposeful, solid, and focused! Please be sure that you are following plans and teaching with a sense of urgency every day. We do not have a minute to waste. K-2, you may not be testing grades, but what you do matters tremendously. You are building the foundation. Gaps in learning need to be closed! Together we can do this. Make sure that you are doing your part EVERY DAY!
