  1. Our school has a rule in our charter that students who disrupt OTHER STUDENTS’ LEARNING PROCESS can be exited. What it takes though is for teachers to call their stuff. Until this year we had an admin that would put them on contract and would generally fail to follow through with exiting unless violence was involved regularly. This led to a general feeling among staff of what does it matter and students of they won’t do anything.

    This year has been different. Our new admin comes directly from the classroom and knows the devastation to a classroom community when there is constant interruption. Now we have all those special needs children (lots of them because we are an alternative to the traditional public school system) and the kids with a rough exterior, but when they cross the boundary of invading other’s learning processes, she moves on it with a team of parents, staff and student. She is clear about the expectation without being confrontational and just moves the process along including searching and providing supports to help the student succeed. But, if they don’t want to do their 50%, they are exited. Haven’t had a single student not get she was serious and get to work willingly to stay at our school this year. Admin support makes all the difference.

  2. Kate, that is wonderful for you.

    Whenever I hear about administrators that don’t follow through – and when I let something slide that I shouldn’t – I am reminded of what I heard one time in a sermon: “God destroyed pharaoh by letting him have his own way.”

    How many students’ lives are destroyed because parents, teachers and administrators let them have their own way?
