Good afternoon, colleagues! I am curious about how you handle probation in the dialectic years. Our school has a long-standing process in place which calls for probation in both academic and behavioral concerns, such that students with D's or below are automatically placed on probation as well as students with significant behavioral issues. We are dissatisfied with how this serves students who are new to the school and struggling over a few semester to catch up - they may be working hard and growing, yet they have D's in a various subjects for a semester and this places them on probation. At the same time, we question what is a fair consequence or correction when students are placed on behavioral probation - do any of you have systematized consequences? Thank you in advance for any sharing of policy or suggestion you might have!
If you have not yet seen the video on discipline on ClassicalU, I encourage you to view it. It only addresses your concern in a general way, but nonetheless is helpful. It is entitled School Discipline with Grace and you can view it here.
Thank you! Yes, I have watched this before and it's a great recommendation. Always good to keep these ideas forefront!
