3 Discipline Policy PHILOSOPHY We believe that the most important function of our school is to promote academic achievement. Our goal is to provide a safe, nurturing and academically stimulating environment.. The purpose of the Discipline Policy is to teach behaviors that will enable each child to be responsible and make appropriate choices so that he/she can learn. McNair s Discipline Policy is designed to enable all students to learn. The policy is intended to reflect a balance between the responsibilities and rights of the individual and the group. It is also intended to inform students, staff, and parents/guardians of the expectations for behavior at school. The staff at Ronald McNair utilizes Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS) processes. PBIS is a process for creating safer and more effective schools. PBIS is a systems approach to enhancing the capacity of schools to educate all children by developing research-based, school-wide, and classroom discipline systems. The process focuses on improving a school s ability to teach and support positive behavior for all students. In order to implement the Discipline Policy at Ronald McNair, there are four criteria that must be followed by all members of the community: RESPECT FOR ONESELF Each person will avoid situations that could bring about physical and/or emotional harm to themselves. RESPECT FOR THE RIGHTS OF OTHERS Each person will avoid situations that could bring about physical and/or emotional harm to others. Each person will show respect towards others in words and actions. APPROPRIATE GROUP BEHAVIOR Each person will enable all members of a group to pursue learning without interference. RESPECT FOR PROPERTY Each person will use materials and property in a manner in which they were intended to be used. We considered these statements of respect in developing five school rules: 1. I will respect and follow staff direction. 2. I will keep hands, feet, and objects to myself. 3. I will respect people and their property. 4. I will be where I am supposed to be, when I am supposed to be. 5. I will not have or talk about dangerous items or topics. Ronald McNair Motto Safe Organized Actively Learning Respectful

4 A STATEMENT ON RETALIATION In order to maintain a peaceful school environment, physical retaliation is viewed as an unacceptable response by students at McNair. In the event that students find themselves in a situation that they feel is intimidating or threatening, they are encouraged to do the following: D decide to ignore E exit, walk away B be friendly U use a firm message G get adult help Students engaged in physical retaliation may face consequences listed under fighting and intimidation in the school Discipline Policy, if it is judged that any of the above alternative actions to retaliation could have been taken. RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES Students: Students have the right to a public school education in an environment conducive to learning. They are expected to do the following: 1. Attend school and classes regularly, to arrive on time, and to fulfill to the best of their abilities the Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) objectives. 2. Understand and observe the rules of the school. The MCPS Guide to A Student s Rights and Responsibilities is available in the main office and on the McNair webpage for your review. Parents: Parents have the right to expect that the school will address the learning needs of their children. Parents are expected to do the following: 1. Send their children to school regularly, on time, and prepared to work. 2. Respond to communications from the school pertaining to their children. 3. Understand and support the fair, consistent administration of school rules and policies. Staff: Staff have the right to work in an atmosphere of respect with the support and guidance of the administration in maintaining high professional standards. Staff are expected to do the following: 1. Work with students so they understand the objectives and what they are expected to learn. Encourage and help the students understand and support the rules of the school. 2. Know and consistently enforce the rules and policies of the school. 3. Maintain communication between home and school. Administration: The administration, with the cooperation of staff, students, and parents, will work to achieve the objectives of MCPS and Ronald McNair Elementary. The administrators are expected to do the following: 1. Make known and interpret to students, parents, and staff the MCPS discipline policies and the local school discipline policy. 2. Implement specific plans for effective student, parent, and staff participation in the formulation and review of the local school discipline policy. 3. Guide and support all building personnel in maintaining appropriate and effective discipline. 4. Confer with staff, students, and parents on discipline matters.

5 STATEMENT OF DISCIPLINARY ACTION Discipline is best handled at the level where a change in behavior can be encouraged and documented. In problem solving models and DEBUG strategies, students are expected to make responsible choices that resolve their own conflicts before resorting to adult intervention. Consequences for not following the school rules are listed below. The consequences are flexible and may vary for each situation. Consequences will depend on the severity of the infraction, frequency of occurrence and age of the student. They are listed from the least severe (staff conference) to the most severe (expulsion from school). 1. A conference between the student and the staff member resulting in proactive measures and/or consequences, as appropriate. 2. Student-teacher-parent telephone or in-person conference resulting in consequences, as appropriate (e.g., detention). 3. Referral to an administrator for conference and/or disciplinary action, as appropriate. 4. Parent-administrator conference with staff (and student, as appropriate). 5. Intervention for part or all of the school day. 6. In-school or out-of-school suspension from school for one to ten days. 7. Recommendation for additional five days extended suspension. 8. Recommendation for expulsion. DUE PROCESS All appeals of disciplinary action should begin with the staff member who made the decision. The student has the right to appeal a decision to the principal. The principal shall hear the appeal within three school days and notify the student/parent of his/her decision. The decision of the principal may be appealed to the Associate Superintendent. 1. All appeals of a decision should begin with the staff member making the decision. 2. Students may appeal a decision to the principal. 3. The principal hears the appeal within three school days and notifies the student/parent of his/her decision. 4.
