California State Education Code –
There are two recent state codes for parents/guardians to note.
California Code of Regulations, Title 5 Section 4622
Requires pupils to conform to school regulations; obey all directions; be
diligent in study and respectful to teachers and others in authority; and refrain from the use of profane and vulgar language.
California Education Code Section 44807
Every teacher in the public schools shall hold pupils to a strict account of their conduct on the way to and from school, on the playground and/or during recess.
Each of the teachers has a classroom discipline plan posted in the classroom. This plan includes a list of expected behaviors. Positive behavior is recognized and encouraged through a system of classroom and school rewards. There is also an established system of consequences for misbehavior.
At our school we use a technique called “Conflict Strategies” to help students develop problem-solving skills and self-reliance. These strategies will allow most children to learn alternative ways to reach positive closure on misunderstandings, thereby growing in their responsibility to themselves and others.
- State the “I message”. I feel ___ when __ and I would like__.
- Tell your side of the problem.
- Listen when the other person is telling their side.
- Talk it over together to try to solve the problem
- Say - “I’m sorry”.
- If these strategies do not work, ask an adult for help.
