3. Referral

Progress Discipline Consequences-Each referral moves a student to the next level of consequences.

   (includes a written reflection)

Some behaviors may require a more severe consequence, bypassing progressive discipline steps. This will be determined by the homebase teacher, team leader and the principal.

Students who can go 10 school days without a referral will move back down to the 1st step in the progressive discipline consequence levels.
