Children and teachers will work together to create some classroom rules, in addition to school wide rules and consequences. Failure to obey these rules will result in the following disciplinary action:
Level 1: Misbehavior at this level is taken care of within the classroom as per the list of rules generated by the children and teachers.
Level 2: Misbehavior at this level is more serious and the child will be taken to the Director for a “cooling down” period and discussion. The parents/guardians will be notified, in writing.
Level 3: Misbehavior at this level occurs when the behavior by the child has either been repeated or is more serious. Parents will be notified, a conference will be set up, and the parents (guardians), teacher and child will write a contingency contract; to be kept in the student’s file.
Level 4: Misbehavior at this level occurs when a child breaks a contingency contract or is seen as a danger or threat to any faculty member or student, determined by the faculty. The parents/guardians will be notified immediately and will be asked to remove the child from the school environment. Level 4 misbehavior results in a one to three day suspension at the discretion of the faculty.
Level 5: Misbehavior at this level occurs when a child is suspended two times or has continued to show repeated misbehaviors with no improvements. If a student reached this level, the Directors and parents will be notified and the child will be asked to leave the school permanently.
