When a student displays an unexpected behavior:
The teacher determines if the behavior is minor (teacher-managed) or major/chronic minor (office-managed) behavior.
For minor behavior, the teacher provides teaching/conference/warning with student and/or parent contact as needed. Major behaviors and chronic minor behaviors with documentation and referrals are completed in our revised referral system in Google.
Students may NOT be sent to the office. If a referral is entered in our referral system, call the office, and an administrator or safety officer will come to the classroom.
Who should manage the behavior?
Cheating on assignments
Food or drink
Refusing to work
Aggressive physical contact
Bullying (repeated and unwanted aggressive behaviors with an imbalance of power)
Skipping/leaving the classroom
Tobacco - smoking/vaping
Weapons (or look-alike)
**Dress Code Violations - defined by BOE policy - school administration determines the appropriateness of student dress and grooming.
