Fifth grade discipline plan


At a recent staff meeting Ms. Sweet asked teachers to post their discipline plans on their classroom web pages.  Ms. Schroeder, Ms. Flanagan, and I agreed on the plan as stated below:

Discipline Procedures for 5th Grade:

  1. Verbal Warning
  2. Brief  conference with the teacher at the beginning of  recess
  3. If behavior continues, parent contact (e-mail or phone call)

Good behavior is rewarded in class, in various ways, depending on teacher.  Teachers frequently review behavior expectations with class. 

If there is a physical fight, stealing, unsafe behavior, inappropriate language, or extreme defiance, student will be sent to Mrs. Sweet for a conference.

During switching for science, social studies, or special projects, any problems will be reported to the regular classroom teacher, to contact parents.

If there is a conflict during recess, one of the teachers will discuss it with the involved students during the next available recess.
