Hillcrest Middle School's Discipline Policy:
MTSS/RTI - B: RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION – BEHAVIOR
(The HMS School-Wide Prevention Program)
Our progressive discipline is based on the Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) Response to Intervention – Behavior (RTI-B) program.
Students are expected to conduct themselves in a proper manner at all times. Specific guidelines are outlined in the DVUSD Student Rights and Responsibility (SR & R) Handbook. The school rules apply coming to school, going home from school, and at all school-sponsored events. General misbehavior is handled by the classroom teacher in the following manner:
PROGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR INTERVENTIONS
Step 1: Universal Interventions (Warning/Redirection)
Step 2: 1st Minor Incident Report with Interventions
Step 3: 2nd Minor Incident Report with Interventions and Parent Email
Step 4: 3rd Minor Incident Report with Interventions and Parent Phone Call
Step 5: Major Behavior Referral
Consequences for inappropriate behavior will be given according to the DVUSD discipline guidelines as outlined in the Student Rights and Responsibility (SR & R) Handbook.
Avoiding these steps comes from your child making good choices, and communicating with me if he or she feels the need to make a choice I may not understand. Please encourage your child to speak with me if a conflict arises, and I am sure we can overcome any obstacle before it becomes insurmountable.
