Summary[ edit ] The main ideas of Discipline and Punish can be grouped according to its four parts:
Solving the Problem Is school bus discipline a problem in your school? Two school bus discipline policies available on the Web might serve as effective models. By the end of the school day, students are eager to get home -- and school staff are eager to get them out the door!
Once students are on their buses, they might be out of your control -- but they are still your responsibility. After the bus pulls out of the school parking lot, the bus driver is in command.
But, as many educators are well aware, drivers often need the support of school administrators in getting their passengers home safely. And many school administrators have found that a strong, well-thought-out -- and enforceable -- bus discipline policy is the only way to "travel.
Behavior problems on the school buses were the motivation behind the new policy.
Expected bus behavior is broken down into three levels. At each level, the consequences for misbehavior are spelled out in detail. Level I behaviors include being seated when the bus is moving. Failure to follow that rule will result in one or more consequences, including a warning, an assigned seat on the bus, or a one- to three-day after school detention.
Level II behaviors include "Do not hit, punch, or kick" and consequences include one or more of the following: Level III behaviors include the possession or use of matches or lighters and consequences include a five-day or longer bus suspension, a three- to ten-day school suspension, expulsion from school, or contact with police or district justice.
All misbehaviors include parental notification. Then parents took the handbooks home with them for reference. Half a country away, in Anoka, Minnesota, Chuck Holden watches over the safety of 37, students each day.
We were experiencing problems because discipline problems on school buses were being handled inconsistently. The policy has greatly reduced the inconsistencies. Inthe state of Minnesota mandated bus safety education.
And overall discipline has improved. A suspension will usually resolve the problem. Each year we handle just a few of the most serious offenses. And a yearly meeting is set aside for the purpose of reviewing the discipline policy. In addition, drivers participate in special in-service programs focused on handling situations that require discipline.Byrd Avenue | Philadelphia, MS | Phone: | Fax: Tweet; Tweet; If there is a boundary, count on high school students to test it.
