We have a regular teacher that stays in the room all day and monitors the students.
Also, students who come to school tardy have to stay there until the end of the class period before going to the next class. If a student comes to your classroom tardy, they have to go to Choice for 30 minutes before coming to class and are marked absent in the class. All absences over 6 per semester have to be made up...either after school or on Saturday school...and there are always teachers present (they are paid for afterschool tutorial and Saturday school).

Ours is called the "Choice Room"....the student makes the choice whether he
wants to stay in the classroom or have to visit the Choice Room...which
means if he is causing problems, then he HAS made the choice as to where he
needs to be.
