The children at my workplace are smart, ambitious and extremely talented, but despite these enormous virtues, some students cause a large amount of problems. Some educators simply do not want to deal with these disciplinary issues and some just don’t know how. Some teachers have decided that the best way to handle the situation is by sending the students to the front office with a disciplinary referral prior to applying the school’s disciplinary plan. The teachers have been instructed by the school in the past to apply in class punishment or consequences, but some do not take this request into consideration. The State has informed the District that to many referrals have been written for the current year and improvements need to take effect immediately. A web-based disciplinary training module is going to be conducted which will involve all teachers from all grade levels. The purpose of the training is to educate the teachers on how to handle discipline in the classroom and when to send a student to the front office with a referral. This training will be available as a web-based training module via internet.
