What this means:
While at school, in the classroom or on the playground, your child is expected to follow our school rules. Acceptable behavior is encouraged by giving positive verbal rewards. Asking a child to stop and think about his/her behavior enables the child to work at self-control. When a child does not cooperate, appropriate strategies will be used to manage behavior. Corporal punishment is NOT an acceptable method of dealing with children’s behavior. Children will not be hit, slapped or spanked in any manner while attending the Escalante-Biggs Academy.
If the rule is broken:
Unless it is a very serious problem, your child’s teacher and an appropriate staff member will talk with your child and will also talk with the child’s parents. If behavior problems persist, a conference will be scheduled with the parent to discuss what may be helpful in motivating the child to behave in an acceptable way. It may be suggested that the child be involved in a behavior plan, with the parent being involved in the process as well.
If the rule continues to be broken:
According to state law, if a student is habitually disruptive or disobedient, the procedure in the District Behavior Standards and Conduct Discipline Code booklet should be followed. For more information about the procedure, please contact Eric A. Love – Principal.
