Student Centered Discipline Plan
1. The teacher will be prepared for each class.
2. The teacher will exhibit consistency in discipline.
3. The teacher will treat each student with fairness and will focus on a global
perspective of classroom discipline.
4. The teacher will do whatever is needed to keep her students safe.
5. The teacher will create a safe, loving, and supportive environment where students are
able to do fun and interesting activities with control.
6. The teacher will have a positive outlook and a constant “game face”, no matter what
else is going on in her life.
1. We will respect each other and everyone else we encounter.
2. We will work hard and be nice.
3. We will take responsibility and be accountable for our actions.
4. We will resolve our conflict as a group with class mediation, promoting higher level
thinking by working as a family to create and maintain a safe and productive
5. We will come to school and class prepared, with a positive outlook and our “game
1. Our classroom will have an economic system (modeled after Rafe Esquith’s
classroom economy system).
2. Students will have the opportunity to earn homework passes.
3. When the group does well as a whole we will receive a “class brag” where the entire
class is honored in a public place in a respectful and kind manner.
4. Additionally, our class has the chance to win a reward as a group (such as a food
treat, game time, extra riddles, an outing).
5. Outstanding individuals have the opportunity to win individual incentives, such as
extra time in a favorite subject, a public brag, and lunch with the teacher.
Students who exhibit behavior that is possibly harmful to the productivity and safety of
the classroom environment have several options for intervention:
1. Group mediation
2. Individual behavioral goals that result in a reward or recuperated privileges.
3. The students will be given choices for behavioral outcomes and they must
explain why they are making their selected choice.
4. Student/Teacher conference
5. Parent/Student/Teacher conference
6. Loss of privileges (free time, games, fun activities)
7. Loss of rewards given to class
8. Small group mediation with peers
9. “Cool down time” in a secluded area
10. Removal from class
There are several instances that I see as non-negotiable, in which a student does not have
the right to remain in our classroom and must leave. They are as follows:
1. Student threatening the safety of others
2. Student threatening the safety of themselves
3. Visible intoxication
4. Extreme fighting
5. Severe and un-resolvable disrespect or conflict between students that can’t be solved
with any of the interventions listed above.
