Progressive Discipline Plan
Teachers have well defined expectations, rules, and procedures that serve to optimize the learning environment in their individual classrooms. Should a conflict or misconduct occur in the classroom or on school grounds, staff will adhere to the following system of increasing consequences.
Minor/Moderate Conflicts and Misconducts
When behavior issues arise that jeopardize student safety and detract from the learning environment, teachers need to document these incidents.
Incidents recorded need to include a description of the infraction and a description of what the teacher did to solve the problem.
teacher/counselor/administration meeting. The outcome of this meeting will be a specific behavior plan outlining acceptable behaviors necessary for the student to remain enrolled in the class. Incident will be entered into JMC Discipline Reporting Data by the administration.
Note: A teacher may modify her/his individual classroom discipline plan to include additional steps; however, ALL of the interventions listed above MUST be included in the plan, particularly as they relate to parent/guardian contact.
Documentation through JMC is necessary to collect accurate data and solve problems. Incremental steps must be established and followed to maintain a safe and productive learning environment.
Severe Conflicts and Misconducts
Professional judgment by the administration will determine the severity of the incident and the need for more severe and immediate action, including a required parent conference and/or suspension.
Parent/Guardians will be notified that their student is not behaving in an appropriate manner and may be called to pick them up and remove them from school for the remainder of the day.
