At Brigadoon Elementary School we strive to create a safe, healthy, happy learning environment for all students. When problems occur, we depend on the “Three-Legged Stool” model of discipline:
Clear expectations, consistent enforcement, and supportive relationships.
LEVEL ONE BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS
Minor behavior problems are those that staff members can take care of immediately. Natural consequences and problem-solving will be used. If there are consistent problems, the student may receive a level one discipline report.
Level I behaviors are minor infractions that staff members can take care of immediately. These include such things as refusal to complete work, disrespect, and playground misconduct. Natural consequences and problem-solving will be used. Parent contacts will be made when necessary. If there are consistent problems with these, the student may receive a discipline report.
Possible Level 1 Consequences
Practice a better choice
Time out followed by problem-solving
Loss of recess, free time, or privileges, with practice to develop better choices
Completing a problem-solving form
Talking through the problem solving process
Conference with Teacher
Phone call to parent for support
Individual Academic Plan
Level 2 Behavior Problems
Persistent Level I behaviors and/or more serious behaviors result in a Level II consequence. These behaviors are more serious because they stop children from learning, are dangerous, are disrespectful, or are seriously detrimental to a safe learning environment.
Possible Level 2 Behaviors
Persistent level 1 behaviors
Destruction of property
Defiance to School Personnel
Obscene or vulgar language or gestures
Possible Level 2 Consequences
Parent will be contacted by the staff/principal
A student, staff, principal contract can be made together
In-school suspension to include problem-solving
Out-of-school suspension (followed by parent-student and school staff conference)
Modified school day to help train for success
Referral to the “Brigadoon Intervention Team”
Referral to Counselor
Brigadoon staff will meet with teachers and parents to work through problems that have not been resolved.
The Building Intervention Team is a forum where a team of staff members and a child’s parents discuss further ways to help a child with problems.
Level 3 Behavior Problems
Persistent Level 2 behaviors and more serious, unlawful behavior, result in Level 3 consequences. Behaviors at this level are extreme and warrant measures to insure the safety and well-being of all children.
Usually when a student reaches this level he/she has had many people helping them at all levels. Serious measures must be taken to give the student parameters. This helps him/her understand that he/she needs to be a responsible member of the community.
Possible Level 3 Behaviors
Persistant level 2 behaviors
Serious destruction of property
More than 3 in-school suspensions in three weeks
Possible Level 3 Consequences
Parents will be contacted by the principal
Suspension with re-training to help student be successful in school
Suspension followed by a re-entry conference with parent/student/school staff
Behavior Plan and monitoring of behavior
Discipline and due process, as required by the Federal Way School District.
