Class Room Design
  • All Student’s can learn!

  • I am not going to provide answers.
  • I am going to ask the right questions so you can justify your answer!

To Leave:

  • I will not accept written passes or phone calls asking me to send a kid.
  • Only PACK passes accepted are those teacher PACK passes distributed to teachers from the office.
  • Movement is controlled by the teacher not the student. 
    • No movement
    • No talking
  • You can not sign out because you choose to go see a teacher or go somewhere. 
  • I have a sign out sheet. 
    • To signing out you must have an approved pass or your name is on the permanent intervention list.
    • No Pass No go.
  • You are to leave at the start of PACK not halfway through. 
    • You have 3 - 4 minutes to be where you need to be.

To Arrive:

  • Stay Awhile: You will not be sent back. 
    • You will stay here once you arrive
  • If you misplace the pass you lose the privilege to come see me.
    • If you abuse the privilege such as leave and not go where you are supposed to etc. you lose the privilege for 1 week and if you do it again you lose it for the month and after that the semester.
  • Every student signs in when they arrive at their destination.

      • 3rd and 4th tardy: teacher assigns Student Court and
      • 5th or more: Office referral, resulting in Friday Workday assignments (during ACT).
        • Students with excessive tardies may be placed on an attendance contract.
