“Today the School, Tomorrow the World. Global Education for a Global Society” • Bullying or using humiliating or intimidation language or behavior • Fighting (no weapons/no physical harm) DCPS has established a Student Discipline Policy designed to ensure the rights and responsibilities of all students. While grounds for disciplinary action are outlined in the DCPS policy, Roosevelt High School has the authority to transfer a student to his/her neighborhood school if the student is not meeting the expectations of the RHS community or fails to maintain eligibility for a DCPS special or city-wide program. Students must maintain a cumulative 2.0 GPA to remain a student of RHS. The instructional superintendent of cluster 9 will receive all recommendations for dismissal of any student who does not meet the academic criteria to remain a student of Roosevelt SHS. SCAR Team (Student Character & Refinement Team) The SCAR Teams (Deans/ ISS) functions as a support system for all staff and students participating in the learning process. The fundamental purpose of the SCAR Team is to promote and sustain a positive and challenging learning community through discipline, character development, motivation and teaching students how to make wise day to day decisions. Our goal is to foster a socially transforming environment that inspires our children, empowers our teachers and encourages our parents to participate in the child’s learning process. The Dean’s office is not the first option for discipline. Teachers should hold students accountable for their actions before involving the Dean. Our Discipline Plan involves 3 fundamental components: to teach, to discipline and to inspire. • Teach – Dean’s will teach students the skills and habits necessary to succeed in a structured learning community • Discipline - Discipline will be used as a means to bring about change in the students philosophy and actions towards the learning community. • Inspire – Dean’s will consistently motivate students. Through motivation, students will develop positive habits and have a desire to participate and perform within and beyond the Roosevelt HS learning community. Behavior Ladder Each class will have a posted set of the school expectations and your classroom procedures. • Verbal/Non-Verbal Warning • Redirection (warning) • In Class Consequence • Teacher Conference • Send Referral (make parental contact) 25
