DISCIPLINARY ACTIONS_______________________________________________________

         Six demerits received during one trimester will result in a detention. Detentions must be served on the day assigned, and will last for one hour after school. Detention dates may only be moved under special circumstances and at the teacherís discretion. Failure to serve a detention on the assigned date may result in an additional detention.

 

         Two detentions received during one trimester will result in a parent/teacher conference with the student. During this conference, a behavioral contract followed by a two-week probation may be implemented. A behavioral contract will outline the school privileges that the student will lose and/or a possible in-school suspension if the student continues to receive demerits during the probation period. If a student is suspended, assignments will be given to the student to compensate for missing school time and must be completed before re-admittance to class. Students that receive a suspension may not participate in any extracurricular activities for a week following the suspension. (no practices or games/matches)
