Ready-to-Learn Process Outline

  • Ensuring all Meadowlawn Students Are to Ready to Learn

    Detention (45mins) M/W 4:15pm-5:00pm

    Multiple staff members, in highly visible areas will issue detentions to students at the time they see students committing infractions (dress code, profanity, out of area, running, disruptive, etc.). The student will select an upcoming Monday or Wednesday date for the 45 minute detention from 4:15pm-5:00pm. It is the students’ responsibility to inform the parent that a detention has been assigned.

    Transportation is not provided and will need to be arranged for your scholar.   Students who fail to attend or disrupt detention on the date they selected, will automatically be assigned an extra school on the following day of the missed detention, and a call to the parent will be made informing them of the missed detention and assigned extra school.


    Extra School (1:30mins) T/TH 3:30pm-5:00pm

    Students who commit more serious offenses (leaving campus, class disruption, etc.), repeat offenses or fail to serve detention will serve a 1:30 min. extra school. An afternoon D.N.A. (Do Not Admit) list will be
    emailed to all teachers every Tuesday and Thursday, instructing them to send the Do Not Admit students to the designated location unless they show an all clear pass from the office. Students who fail
    to attend or disrupt Extra School will be assigned 1 day of ABS (Alternate Bell Schedule) from 12:00pm to 5:00pm. Transportation is not provided and will need to be arranged for your scholar.  


    Alternative Bell Schedule (ABS hours) 12:00-5:00pm

    Students who commit more serious offenses, repeat offenses or fail to attend/disrupt extra school will receive ABS. A list of students who have been assigned ABS and should not be in class will be posted
    daily. Work will be provided by ABS staff. Disruption in ABS will result in additional days ABS or Out of school suspension.


    Progressive Discipline

    Students who commit more serious or repeat offenses will be subject to more serious consequences as a result of the continuous disruptive behavior. Consequences will be up to and including multiple days.
    ABS, OSS and Reassignment.


    Repeat Misconduct

    In order to ensure all teachers can teach and all students have the right to learn in a safe and orderly environment, students who fail to respond to interventions/support and reach or exceed the established criteria (# referrals/ IC visits), will have all behaviors identified as Repeat Misconduct.

    Repeat Misconducted requires the student, along with their parents, sign a behavioral contract outlining the expectations moving forward.

    All students continuing repeat misconduct, according to the progressive discipline matrix, will only receive ABS or OSS as a consequence for any and all infractions (ESE exceptions). Students who violate the behavioral contract, present a danger to the safe and orderly operation of the school and/or continually disrupt the teaching and learning process will be referred for reassignment.
