WHEN THERE IS A MATTER THAT REQUIRES DISCIPLINE, THE FOLLOWING WILL OCCUR: 1. General problems observed will be dealt with by the concerned teacher, starting with a verbal warning followed by a written note in the child’s diary if the problem is repeated. 2. The next step may require that the teacher inform the concerned discipline in charge of the problem through the referral form and the discipline in charge will then assume the key role in the process. 3. Following, the issue will be taken to the Head of the Section and in the last stage to the Discipline Committee. 4.

At this point in the process, parents will then most likely be contacted and their input sought. Then, under the guidance of the administration, an appropriate plan for any discipline and restoration will be worked out. This could include requiring counseling, detention, in-school or out-of school suspension, academic penalties, athletic or extra-curricular ineligibility and in some extreme cases, expulsion.

5. The nature of some offenses requires that the administration inform the faculty and/or student body of the offense and the steps taken related to its resolution. This is done in order to avoid the rumors that spread and ultimately hinder restoration. The appropriate faculty will be notified of probations and of any other disciplinary action that will impact the student's academic life.

6.

Parents, students and faculty must understand that just as no two people are exactly alike, not all disciplinary action will be exactly alike. Factors such as previous offenses, response to previous discipline, and confession vs. "being caught" are all taken into consideration. Discipline will differ from person to person, even in the case of similar offenses. The goal is to see a heart changed positive.

DETENTIONS AT ASPS Detention must be used wisely in order to be effective. Teachers must not give detention for more than one day for the same offense, unless work set has not been completed. Giving a child detention for a week for a single offense is not advisable, unless the offense is of such gravity.

1. The teacher giving the detention must fill the detention slip and hand it over to Karen before the start of break. 2. Work must be set and children should not be found sitting without work to do during the detention period. 3. All detentions must be served the day that they are issued OR on the next detention day. 4. Detentions begin promptly at 10:40 and end at 11:20. 5. There is no late admittance without proper reason. 6. During detentions, detainees may not talk. They have to sit quietly and finish the work assigned by the concerned teachers. 7. Students may eat their snack or request a friend to buy some food for them from the canteen. The detained student is strictly prohibited from going down to the canteen during detention. 8. Inherent in a detention is inconvenience regarding after school practices, rehearsals, games and jobs. When activities and patterns that result in detentions are avoided, the inconveniences of detention cease to be an issue.
