LAKE ALFRED ELEMENTARY DISCIPLINE PLAN
Our Discipline Goals
At LAE, everyone:
works to be the best they can be.
takes responsibility for their own behavior.
treats themselves and others with dignity and respect.
works to create a positive, safe, caring, and orderly school climate.
focuses on the prevention of discipline problems.

These general rules outline the behavior expected of everyone at LAE. Each teacher has developed a classroom management plan, which establishes the expectations, the consequences for misbehavior and rewards for appropriate behavior.
Classroom management plans are posted in the classrooms, and a copy will be sent home with students for parents to sign and return. All Classroom management plans include “time out” in the classroom, and “time out” in another classroom or
Choice” (in-school suspension room) as consequences for inappropriate behavior.
We expect civil behavior from our students:
Schools are places where students gain the knowledge and skills to be responsible, contributing and independent members of our society. Success in life is dependent not only on knowledge and skill but also on attitude and self-concept. All of these are molded and shaped in the education process. Our goal is to teach our students how to use the following social skills:
introducing themselves, showing respect, following instructions, talking with others, accepting “No” for an answer, accepting criticism or a consequence, disagreeing appropriately, showing sensitivity to others, accepting consequences, accepting decisions of authority, greeting others, learning things to do to control their anger, asking for help, asking questions, completing tasks, completing homework, using appropriate voice tone, using appropriate word choice, following a reasonable request, joining in a conversation, correcting another person, following rules, getting another person’s attention, getting the teacher’s attention, doing good quality work, ignoring distractions by others, interrupting appropriately, correcting another person, making an apology, participating in activities, making positive statements about others, resisting peer pressure, saying “No,” staying on task, waiting his/her turn, following written instructions, and giving compliments.
