Under the new HCS guidelines, it is imperative that we are striving to be fair and consistent with discipline matters. In order to be sure this happens, teachers should provide a clear and detailed description of any discipline issue(s) brought to the attention of administration. Additionally, in accordance with federal guidelines SPED students with continuous behavior problems should have behavior plans in place or working towards one.
Very important: During club days contact the front office and ask for an administrator to come to your club location to assist with discipline issues.
Be sure to complete your SafeSchoolsTraining on policy change 5.6 that is due by April.
