The Alliance and Administration worked together to create a flow chart to help give administrators and teachers a clearer picture of the steps to take when a student violates the Student Code of Conduct or engages in inappropriate behavior. The chart makes clear that a teacher should write a discipline referral when a student violates the SCOC. The flow chart can be found in the “Forms” portion of the Administrative Procedures section of the SAISD website: http://nova.saisd.net/storage/uploads/Policies/F11_A_Exhibit.pdf.
There will still be some revisions to the flow chart. The section on the Safe Schools Act will reflect that the scheduling of the required parent conference must occur within three school days and that the Placement Review Committee only meets when the principal wants to return the student and the removing teacher does not consent. The Alliance will keep you updated.
