Examples of not showing respect for school property are:
Writing on or damaging books, furniture, or walls;
Using the Teacher's Edition without permission;
Consequences: If you chew gum at school, you will receive detention. If you deface something (if you can clean it off) you will clean it up, and receive detention. You will receive a call home, and a citation for damaging school or another student's property, stealing, or using the Teacher's Edition.
You can talk, if you raise your hand and after an adult has called on you.
Examples of this are talking out of turn, talking back to a teacher (talking after an adult says, "That is the final word."), or talking after an adult tells you or the class to be quiet.
You can talk when the teacher calls on you, when the teacher asks for a class response, or when the teacher has you working in groups.
Consequences: You will receive detention for talking out of turn or talking during a quiet time. If you are repeatedly disruptive (talking out of turn), you will receive a call home and a written citation/referral.
You can leave your seat, if you raise your hand and get permission.
Sit upright in your seat (your bottom on the seat, all four chair legs and both of your legs on the floor). No tipping or rocking.
Stay out of off-limits areas (teacher desks, teacher cabinets). You should only be at a computer if you have permission.
Consequences: You will receive detention for repeated poor body space (not staying in your seat). You will receive detention for being in an off-limits area in the classroom. You will receive a citation for leaving the classroom without permission.
