Subject: Leaving Children Without Proper Supervision Consistent with Chancellorâ€™s Regulations A-412 and A-420 which refers to Safety of Children in Schools and Corporal Punishment, any class left unattended will result in disciplinary action against the teacher who knowingly leaves a group under their own recognizance, or with another teacher already supervising a class. It is poor professional judgment on the part of any teacher to abandon a class without supervision for any reason, even if for a few moments. Please be advised, if a teacher knowingly leaves a class unsupervised, as per the disciplinary policies set fourth in the Chancellorâ€™s Regulations, the disciplinary procedures will be followed for the teacher in question.
