    School-wide Consequences

    3 Conduct Marks = Respect Statement

    3 Work Habit Marks = Responsibility Statement

     

    Actions Subject to be taken due to Conduct Marks:

    2. Team Detention 5. After School Detention/phone call 6. Office Referral

    Conduct Cards/Thursday Folders

    Students will start with a new conduct card each term.  Teachers will keep track of the cards from each class, and rotate the cards as the students change classes.  Conduct and work habits will be recorded on the cards by each teacher as deemed necessary.  Student will be informed if he/she receives a mark.  The student’s conduct marks will be tallied and recorded at the end of the day on Wednesday by the teacher.  The card will then be sent home Thursday in the student’s Thursday folder, ready for the required parentsignature.  The card MUST be returned the next day to continue recording conduct and work habits.  A nine week conduct grade is determined according to the number of conduct marks a student receives from each subject during that grading period.

    Nine weeks conduct grading period (PER CLASS)
