DISCIPLINE

Discipline is critical to the success of any individual and is always needed when groups of people are in close proximity. We believe each student is responsible for his/her own behavior and that we will intervene only when the student will not take care of that behavior. Normally students just need to be reminded that they need to change a certain behavior but when warnings do not work more formal actions
must be taken. Students may be written up and placed on a level program where they lose recess privileges and other types of privileges to being suspended and or expelled in some cases. Some serious
offenses which can lead to immediate suspension and/or expulsion, include but are not limited to the following:
  1. Weapons or explosive devices of any kind (Minimum: one-year expulsion and notification to parents and law enforcement)
  2. Possession and/or use of drugs, tobacco or alcohol
  3. Fighting/assault, threatening or verbal abuse
  4. Arson or vandalism
  5. Disruption of the educational process
  6. Blatant disrespect, or refusal to follow reasonable directions
  7. Out of control behavior
