A classroom must have order and disciplinary procedures in order to create an environments that is conducive for student learning. So, with that being said I have created and instuted a system in order to both encourage your child to follow rules and reprimand them when they don't follow class rules. Any Major Infractions will be handled by administration.
I will shower your child with verbal praise, motivation, and intrinsice rewards on a regular basis. I always recognize those students who put forth maximum effort and improve as well as my star students.
If your child is having trouble following a rule he or she will get the following
- 1st Offense- Verbal Warning
- 2nd Offense- No Electives for at least 1 day Example: ( Your child will sit out during Physical Education for that day).
- 3rd Offense- Parent Contact & Conference will be held.
- 4th Offense- Your child will be referred to the Dean of Discipline for further disciplinary measures.
