Apparently, the District Code of Conduct Policy is contributing to the complexity of the Problem? It is not working – Just look at the Results – Poor Teacher Retention – Poor Morale – Low Test Scores - Etc. Does it make sense to keep doing the same thing and expecting different results?
The following are areas that need to be addressed:
- Student’s Code of Conduct needs to be addressed.
- Improving the Guidelines for Student Rights and Responsibilities.
- How effective are the Restorative Practices?
- How effective are the Discipline Review Teams which include a Discipline Director?
- There is are Severe Discipline Problems and too much Unruly Behavior in the schools.
- How is the district dealing with Mutual Combat vs Physical Contact?
- Is the District Dealing with Bullying and Harassment properly?
- Is the District Dealing properly with Minor aggressive acts, fighting, assaults, and cursing?
- There is too much Absenteeism, truancy, defiance of authority, and frequent obscenities.
- School leaders accused of downplaying and under-reporting violations
- Are principals accountable for what’s happening in their schools?
- Is there adequate Teacher training on all the new rules?
- How effective is the “Bully Patrol” program?
- Is there proper coordination between Campus monitors, social workers, school resource officers and student success specialists?
- Employee/Teacher Surveys show significant percent think students treat teachers with disrespect
- Arizona’s chronic certified teacher shortage crisis contributes to the problem
- Desegregation Order dictates reduction in the disproportionate discipline of minority students
- TUSD paid $35,000 to a consultant to overhaul the code of conduct, was it well spent?
- We need a Teacher friendly approach to how TUSD handles classroom disciplinary incidents with less bureaucratic steps.
- It takes three interventions by a teacher before the principal (or vice principal) steps in
- What is causing the Misinterpretation of policy and the misalignment between policy and practice?
