Online Learning Expectations

  • I believe every student can behave appropriately in the classroom, at school, and at home.  I will not tolerate any student infringing upon other students' rights to learn or my right to teach. In order to guarantee all students the excellent learning climate they deserve, this class will be using 6 basic rules.

    At the beginning of each semester, students are given two restroom passes to be used throughout the semester.  Additional passes will be given only if absolutely necessary and students will be required to make up the class time they have missed.  

Behavior Expectations

PBIS Expectations

  • Positive Behavior Interventions and Supportive Expectations

    1. Be on time with all your materials, when the bell rings and ready to learn.
    2. Keep hands, feet, eyes, and objects to yourself.
    3. Follow directions the first time they are given.
    4. Respect guests, students, teachers, and yourself by using appropriate language and behavior.
    5. Do your best at all tasks at school and at home.

Corrective Actions

  • When a student breaks a rule: 

    First time                             Reminder / Warning

    Second time:                       Refocus paper +  last to leave class + teacher counseling

    Third time:                           Behavior Contract + teacher counseling

    Fourth time:                         Send to alternate classroom + call / email parents and / or note in PLANNER

    Fifth time:                            Send to counselor, principal or administrator

    Severe clause:                     Send to counselor, principal or administrator

Additional Corrective Actions

  • A verbal warning will be given before any disciplinary action will be taken unless infringement upon other’s safety or right to learn is too severe.  A student's Corrective Actions directly influence the students’ Citizenship and Work Habits grades. If a student chooses to break rules or chooses not to do class work or independent work, break detention, lunch detention, loss of school day reward activities / assemblies, work time before school or after school may be additional corrective actions.  

Early Check Out

  • It is really disruptive when students are checked out early from school.  All classes are important as well as Intervention.  Intervention is the last period of the day and is a time when your child can return to a class to recieve additional assistance on assignments he or she may be struggling to understand and complete.  In this way, teachers can give students additional assistance prior to their arrival at home.  In some cases, students may even be able to complete the assignment prior to leaving school for the day.  As parents, consider encouraging students to meet with intervention teachers and staying until the bell rings for the end of each school day.
