Behavior Expectations

We feel that the responsibility of student behavior is shared by all: the student, parents and the school. With this in mind, students are held strictly accountable for their behavior.

The following guidelines assist school personnel whenever inappropriate student behavior occurs:

1. Teacher will activate classroom discipline plan, which will include

  • establishing classroom agreements.
  • counseling the child.
  • communicating with parents to inform and seek support.
  • providing appropriate consequences.

2. If further assistance is needed, then the child may be referred to the school counselor and/or other administrative designee.

3. Referral to school principal

When the student is referred to the administration, except in extreme situations, it is assumed that the parent/guardian has been previously contacted about the problem.

The principal may choose to:

  • counsel the student.
  • conduct a parent conference.
  • remove the student from the classroom or playground/lunch area.
  • suspend the student (see below).
