positive and structured environment students behave appropriately maximum learning accomplishing tasks all students are learning climate is conducive to learning Therefore, I cannot allow any student to prevent me from teaching and/or any student from learning. My Philosophy:
Town Rules Treat others with respect, the same way you want to be treated. Raise your hand to speak. Wait your turn to speak when someone else is speaking. Respect school property and the property of others.
Town Consequences Consequences: Verbal warning to student Note to parent, identify as unacceptable Loss of privileges, phone call home Parent conference, meeting with principal
