TIGER Discipline and Positive Reward Plan

“TIGER” Discipline Plan
Parent Copy
 
 
QUICK REFERENCE:
 
1ST Time TIGER is earned: a verbal warning will be issued and the teacher will contact the parent.
 
2nd Time TIGER is earned (and each time thereafter): student will receive an office referral and one day of ISS and the teacher will contact the parent.
 
Purpose
1. This is for Daily classroom procedures and rules 
2. To create a classroom environment conducive to learning
3. To improve self-discipline and responsibility
4. To reward students who maintain good behavior
 
Procedures
 
Students who respect others and the property of others, who follow school and classroom rules, who have necessary materials and supplies, and who put forth their best effort will not receive a letter.   Students who choose not to follow these basic guidelines will receive a letter spelling the acronym “TIGER” for their inappropriate behavior or failure to bring needed materials to class.
 
Students can have 5 rule infractions (penalties) before spelling the word, TIGER. However, the student does not get 5 infractions for each class! The team teachers will monitor each student’s infractions and keep a cumulative total for the week. TIGER will start over each week.  The homeroom teacher is responsible for writing TIGER office referrals.
 
The first TIGER will result in a student/teacher conference and the parent will be contacted. The second and subsequent TIGERs each semester will result in an office referral. The teacher will warn the student when he/she has three or more penalties/letters and if the student earns TIGER, an office referral will be done, the student will receive one day of ISS and the parent will be contacted by the teacher. Should the student receive TIGER before Friday, the student will also have silent lunch for the remainder of the week.
 
 
Students who receive 3 letters in one period will be referred to PAUSE for the remainder of that period.
 
 
 
Elective / PE Teachers will use the PAUSE pass and the student will be referred to ISS for the remainder of that period. Excessive issues will be turned over to administration.
 
 
 
 
POSITIVE BEHAVIOR INCENTIVES:
 
Students who do not receive any letters or one letter for 3 consecutive weeks will be rewarded every 3 weeks on TIGER Fun Friday.
 
Students who receive no TIGERs and have no OSS or BUS Suspensions for the nine weeks will be rewarded with a school side event at the end of each nine weeks.
 
No letters will be given for missing homework or any academic situations.
 
Students who have serious infractions will automatically be referred to the office. Examples: pushing, shoving, hitting, kicking, slapping, cussing, spitting, taking other’s property, disrespect to teacher. Bullying, fighting, etc.
