    SHADY HILL: BIG 3

    Do Your Best

    Do What is Right

    Treat Others the Way You Want to Be Treated

    DISCIPLINE POLICY

    Shady Hill takes pride in being a school that focuses on character education as well as academics. We focus on the positive behavior rather than the negative. The positive actions of students are rewarded and as a result we have a school that often serves as a model for others to follow. All of our staff are delighted to reward the children when they are observed doing good things. This is called PBIS. It is a research based behavioral strategy that we use to reward children for displaying desired behaviors. PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Interventions & Support and operates on the premise of improving social, emotional and academic outcomes for ALL students.


    We try to give students multiple opportunities to self-correct however, from time to time, it becomes necessary to discipline children for misbehavior. All teachers are responsible for putting in place a classroom management procedure that will enhance the opportunity for learning to take place for all students.

     

    INTERVENTIONS:

    The following interventions will be used to correct student behavior before further steps are taken:

    1. Parent Contact
    2. Verbal Correction
    3. Private Conference with Student
    4. Seat Change
    5. Behavior Contract
    6. Time Out
    7. Conference with Dean, Principal, Assistant Principal, Guidance Counselor


    NOTE: Teachers are not limited to nor required to use all steps before writing a discipline referral.


    REFERRAL TO DEAN’S OFFICE

    A student’s failure to respond to the attempts by the teacher and parents to change or correct misconduct will result in a discipline referral being written and the student sent to the Dean’s office. Shady Hill will follow the Marion County Code of Student Conduct for Elementary Schools when a child is sent to the office for disciplinary reasons.
