Discipline Policy

At Chaparral we are using a two tier system for communicating with students and parents
regarding expected student behaviors on campus both inside and outside the classroom. When
level 1 infractions are identified inside the classroom or on the playground, students may
receive a Behavior Notice. This notice serves as a warning and time for the student to reflect on
target behavior. This notice will come home for parents to sign. The purpose of this notice is to
call attention to an undesirable behavior that needs redirection. Behavior Notices are expected
to be signed by the parents and then returned to the classroom teacher the next day.

If a behavior is continual and/or the interventions/consequences that have been put in place are
not encouraging a student to make better choices, they may receive a Discipline Slip. Discipline
Slips are given to students for one of two reasons: repeated level 1 behaviors and/or a level 2
behavior. Level 2 behaviors are of very serious nature. If a child receives a Discipline Slip they
will be immediately sent to the office to speak with administration. Parents can expect a call
home if a student receives a Discipline Slip. Discipline Slips are expected to be signed by
parents and returned to teacher the next day.
