|Classroom Expectations and Rules
• Respect yourself, fellow students and teacher through your actions and words and respect your property and the property of others.
• No Talking during instruction and everyone works.
• PARTICIPATE, keep a positive attitude and try your best
• Come to class everyday, on time, and prepared with pen, pencil, paper, homework, textbook, etc…)
• Follow all Jefferson High School rules and in addition, no cell phones to be used in class and electronic devices may be used at teacher discretion, etc.
I believe that all students are capable of making good choices to enhance the learning environment of the classroom. When a student chooses to disrupt the learning environment (being tardy, off-task behavior, general rudeness…) they will receive an opportunity to correct their behavior. If the choice is made to continue being disruptive, the following discipline procedures will occur:
1. The first time, a verbal warning.
2. The second time: I will ask you to step out into the hall until you feel you can correct your behavior. You may return to class when you are ready. I will conference with you later in the hall or after class.
3. The third time, I will telephone your parent/guardian.
4. If you are unable to self manage your behavior so as not to disrupt the learning environment, I will send you out of the room with a referral to the dean’s office
