Student Discipline (K-3)
To establish and maintain a consistent discipline policy in Grades Kindergarten through Third, a “Turn A Card” system will be implemented. The goal is to promote “self-discipline”, so that each child is accountable for his/her actions and accepts consequences for inappropriate behaviors that infringe upon the rights of others. It will also allow parents to track their child’s progress and prevent minor infractions from escalating into major problems.
Four cards are in place for each child.
1st Card Green Indicates good/positive behavior
2nd Card Yellow Warning
3rd Card Orange Five-minute time out
4th Card Red Ten-minute time out and child’s parent will be notified
either by a note or telephone call
At the end of each day, a child’s cards are returned to their original order, indicating a fresh start and another chance at displaying appropriate behavior.
If a child consistently turns a 4th card, the principal will be asked to become involved in the discipline process, and parents will be called in for a conference to discuss actions to help alleviate the inappropriate behavior.
