Discipline Policy

Student Discipline Policy

At Jerabek Elementary, we are committed to providing a high-quality education for our students in a safe, respectful, and positive environment. Each member of our school community plays an important role in supporting our welcoming and inclusive school environment.

The plan employs school-wide strategies to create a safe, supportive, and caring social environment through class meetings, school-wide assemblies, modeling of behaviors, and sharing of learning and leadership. Students, teachers, parents, administrators, support staff, and community members treat one another with respect, dignity and humanity. Our strategies, listed below, enable students to reach high levels of academic achievement in a safe and caring environment.

  • Conflict resolution
  • Problem-solving
  • Cooperative learning
  • Citizenship
  • Critical thinking
  • Leadership
