Change of Terminology: Time Out
The Texas Education Agency and Special Ed Law have used the word "time out" in a more well defined manner. "Time outs" in our school really come with lots of paperwork especially for students under special education.
Click on the link below to read the legal frameworks if you need an explanation.
The powerpoint below has information on how to use "time outs" in the correct manner.
Long story, short- We do not use "time outs" in the legally defined way. We have kids go and cool down, take a break, loose a privilege, have a consequence, etc. However, we use the words "time out" they take on a very different meaning in Texas Public Schools now.
What we need to do?
Stop using the words "time out" and use a calm down corner or cool down area. This does not change the consequence just the wording. We need to help each other learn new words to say instead of "time outs". This is hard because it means the same thing everywhere else but at school.
