Spotlight on Discipline
It is our belief that most discipline problems can and should be handled between the teacher and the student. If, however, the offense is serious or if inappropriate behavior continues, the student may be referred to the office. Prior to a student being referred to the office, it is expected that the teacher will have used a classroom system of consequences that may include a verbal warning, conferencing with student, walking at recess, quiet lunch time, etc. When behavior has escalated, students’ parents will be notified with a phone call and a written classroom referral. This form is meant to inform parents of their child’s behavior in class and document recurring classroom behaviors prior to referring students to the office. In certain circumstances when student behavior is so extreme that immediate intervention is needed, this process may be bypassed and the student will be directly referred to the office. When it becomes necessary to refer a student to the office, the teacher will complete a discipline referral form to be sent to the Assistant Principal or Principal. This documentation is necessary and will be utilized in making decisions concerning consequences. In the case that a student receives a discipline referral to the office, a parent will be notified by an administrator that day.
