In complying with this policy all individuals shall adhere to N.J.S.A. 47:1A-10, the Open Public Records Act (OPRA) and 20 U.S.C. 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

 

MARGATE CITY DISTRICT BOARD OF EDUCATION            FILE CODE: 5131 (R)

Margate, New Jersey

 

Regulation

 

William H. Ross Elementary School Discipline Code

 

The Board of Education of the Margate School District will ensure the safety and welfare of students while in the school building. Students are expected to conduct themselves in an orderly fashion and act with due regard for the educational process of the school.  

 

It is the student’s and parent’s responsibility to become familiar with all the information in this discipline code.  The best discipline is self-discipline, and students are encouraged to think and act wisely and realize the consequences of all actions. When students fail to discipline themselves, after previous teacher intervention (phone calls home, teacher detentions, etc.) they shall be turned over to the designated administrator, personnel, or civil authority. Teachers are primarily responsible for classroom management and discipline in their assigned classes and duties.  All staff members share responsibility for supervising the behavior of students.  All students must follow any reasonable request or directive by any staff member during the school day or at any school sponsored activity.

 

TYPES OF DISCIPLINE

 

1. TEACHER DETENTION: Teachers may issue detentions during recess according to their individual classroom procedures.  Pupils must report for the detention on the date, time, and location assigned by the teacher.  Parents will be notified by the teacher of the detention and the reason it was assigned.

 

2. ADMINISTRATIVE DETENTION: This form of detention is issued to students involved in a serious offense.  These detentions are conducted during recess and are issued by the Principal.  Parents will be notified by the Principal or a designee of the detention and the reason it was assigned. Since the age of our students may prevent them from being in total control of the number of times they are late for school, the consequence in Ross School is referred to in the code as a “recess time out,” in which students go to recess with their class but do not participate.

 

3. ACTIVITY EXCLUSION: This form of action is used in the case of chronic academic or behavioral non-compliance.  These exclusions are conducted during school events such as assemblies, pep rallies, and field trips and are issued by the Principal.  Students must report to an assigned location on the day of the exclusion and not participate in the special event with their classmates. The students will be expected to bring work or reading material to the activity exclusion. Parents will be notified by the Principal or a designee of the exclusion and the reason it was assigned.

 

4.   IN SCHOOL SUSPENSION:  This form of action is for serious Level 2 and Level 3 infractions. A parent meeting will precede the consequence. The pupil will remain under the direct supervision of school personnel. The pupil will complete classwork sent down from his/her teacher(s). Pupils are not to participate in any school activities during the duration of an in school suspension.

 

5.    OUT OF SCHOOL SUSPENSION: This is the most serious disciplinary action that may be imposed by the Principal.  The pupil may not be permitted to return to school until a parent conference is conducted.  Pupils are not to participate in after school activities or return to school for any reason on the day of suspension.  

 

6.   EXPULSION AND ALTERNATIVE PLACEMENT:  These actions can only occur at the direction of the Superintendent of Schools.

 

CODE OF INFRACTIONS AND CONSEQUENCES

The consequences of disciplinary actions stated below will be imposed on a case-by-case basis.  In situations where extraordinary circumstances exist, a determination other than that listed below may be imposed.  If applicable, an IEP must be considered before determining disciplinary action(s).

Infractions are organized in three levels based on the severity of the action and the associated disciplinary consequences. 

 

In the daily operation of a school it is impossible to list every potential infraction which may occur.  Therefore, in situations where these circumstances exist, a determination by an administrator may be imposed.

Level 1:  Level I behaviors are usually handled at the teacher level. Teacher interventions may include parent contact and/or student-teacher conference.  Additional measures may include - but are not limited to - behavioral contracts, loss of privileges, I&RS referral, and teacher detention.  After multiple offenses or at teacher discretion, documentation utilizing the Discipline Referral form will be completed by the teacher, forwarded to the office, and then sent home to the parents/guardians. Interventions/ Consequences for the first three offenses must include at least one of the following: parent/guardian contact, student-teacher conference, or consultation with the building principal where applicable.

 

*The actions listed below are guidelines only; it is left to the discretion of the administration to elevate the level of action to properly reflect the severity of the offense.
