Re: Suggestions for handing behavior problems?

  here is a copy of a poster that i have in my room, and use as a reminder
when needed:

Behavior Management and Consequences
Most Middle School students will respond to verbal reminders about their
behavior. However, more intensive interventions are sometimes required to
help students manage themselves so all may enjoy a safe, productive learning
environment. The following steps will be taken when students are unable or
unwilling to comply with classroom expectations:

        1. Restate classroom expectations in writing. (Copy rules)

       2. Time out problem sheet must be signed by student and
           parent and returned to teacher the following day.
      3. Problem solving essay to be completed satisfactorily by
            the student, signed by a parent, and turned in the day after
it is
            assigned. This must be given to the teacher before the student
            enters class the following day. See attached form. Detention
            may be assigned.

        4. Parent contact by phone or letter.

        5. Team, Administrative, and/ or Counselor Referral.
            Request for formal conference. Parent may be asked to attend.

        6. Contract between teacher and student. with daily
              accountability and parent signature required.

     7. Alternate activity and/or location if unsafe or
             disruptive behavior continues.

Very serious or dangerous behaviors will result in higher levels of
intervention. Additional consequences apply in accordance with school and
county policy.
