Tardies, Phones, Refocus Policies

Tardy Policy

Starting class effectively and efficiently is very important to student learning.  Tardies to any class throughout the day are detrimental to this goal.  Our building has a cumulative tardy policy in place, which resets on a quarterly basis.  The policy details follow:

  • 4 tardies will result in a lunch detention
  • 7 tardies will result in an after-school detention
  • 10 tardies will result in a Saturday detention
  • More than 10 tardies will result in further discipline including loss of locker and passing time privileges.

Phone Policy

Operating a distraction-free class is crucial to student learning.  Interruptions are counterproductive to this objective.  As a result our building has established a quarterly phone policy in place.  The policy details follow:

  • 1 phone violation will have no consequences
  • 2 phone violations will result in a lunch detention
  • 3 phone violations will result in an after-school detention
  • 4 phone violations will result in a Saturday detention
  • 5 phone violations will result in loss of phone privileges

Refocus

Refocus is a procees we utilize to increase student learning by minimizing classroom interruptions.  It is positive, efficient, and been very effective for our school.  Refocus visits are reset each semester.
