Assertive Discipline Policy (Grades 3-5)
In order to give your child and the students in our classrooms the learning climate that they deserve, we will be initiating the following discipline plan.
We believe that all students are capable of behaving appropriately in the classroom. We will not tolerate a student stopping us from teaching and other students from learning.
The students will:
1. Follow rules of behavior and instructions the first time they are given.
2. Talk only with permission.
3. Keep feet, arms, and hands to themselves.
4. Stay in their seats except with permission to leave.
DISCIPLINE CONSEQUENCES PER DAY
If a student chooses to break a rule:
FIRST – one check – warning
SECOND – two checks – lose five minutes of recess
THIRD – three checks – lose ten minutes of recess
FOURTH – four checks – lose one recess
FIFTH - five checks – sent to principal’s office
-ISS remainder of day - parents notified
SEVERE CLAUSE – This goes into effect when there is a severe disruption. Examples: fighting, profane language, severe disobedience/disrespect. Any of these violations will cause a student to be sent to the principal’s office immediately.
POSITIVE BEHAVIOR: Students may earn rewards for positive behavior. These will be given on an individual and classroom basis. Examples: movies, parties, mini-golf, afternoon recess, etc.
