Chart of Discipline: Regulation 5600 - Pupil Discipline / Code of Conduct
2
It is important for parents/guardians and students to understand that the Avon School staff believe in a "restorative practice" philosophy of discipline. Maintaining a healthy learning environment is dependent upon teaching students that positive relationships and adherence to appropriate and responsible behavior are essential to learning, growth, and becoming a productive (respectful, responsible, and caring) members of society.
3
This Chart of Discipline will serve as general guidance and a starting point to build and share a common language and understanding for the level of accountability and associated consequences for student misbehavior. Parents/guardians, students, and school personnel are expected to share the responsibility of not only shifting the focus of intervention from punishment to learning - but also from the individual to the greater learning community.
4
Although all infractions have prescribed and escalating consequences, each situation/incident will be reviewed on an individual basis regarding level the of seriousness and the potential need to adjust the intervention (consequences, counseling, restorative practice, etc.) to best meet the student's needs. In any incident/circumstance deemed necessary, the CSA may make adjustments to the final determination of any and all intervention after evaluating the contributions/responsibilities of the parties involved.
5
Students serving Detention and/or Suspension (In-School or Out-of-School) will be INELIGIBLE (INE) to participate in all school (Co- and Extra-Curricular) activities for the period of time identified or at least until the discipline/intervention has been completed. The CSA may impose additional temporary or permeanent INELIGIBILITY based on the incident circumstances or the student misbehavior track record.
6
Escalation of Behaviors/Incidents
Three first offenses in any combination of categories in any one year will warrant a discipline of a minimum of second offense on a next offense in any category.
7
Three second offenses in any combination of categories in any one year will warrant the discipline of a third offense on the next offense in any category.
8
Two third offenses in any combination in any one year will warrant the discipline of the greatest extent of this policy and referral to the Child Study Team.
