The primary MINOR OFFENSES that we are presently experiencing are students messaging or playing games during instruction.
NO MESSAGING APPS should be on the Chromebook. [STUDENT MESSAGING COULD BE A MAJOR OFFENSE DEPENDING ON THE CONTENT OF THE MESSAGE.]
If an educational app is required for classroom instruction, students may download the designated app. We will follow a PBS model for minor infractions:
1ST OFFENSE: Teacher talks to the student and documents the incident on the Chromebook PBS spreadsheet.
2ND OFFENSE: Teacher calls the parent and documents the incident on the Chromebook PBS spreadsheet.
3RD OFFENSE: Chromebook is taken, and the parent meets with an administrator. After the meeting, the Chromebook will be returned to the student.
4TH OFFENSE: Chromebook is taken for two weeks.
5TH OFFENSE: CHROMEBOOK IS TAKEN FOR FOUR WEEKS
PROFANITY OR INAPPROPRIATE LANGUAGE
