• CELL PHONES

    The use of cell phone is NOT permitted in the classroom.  Cell phones should be kept in the student's backpack on the side of the classroom.  If a student has their cell phone out, for any reason, it will result in the following:

    1st Offense - I  will hold cell phone until the end of class. Email home.

    2nd Offense -  I will hold cell phone until the end of the day (3pm).  Email home.

    3rd Offense -  Parent/Guardian will have to pick up cell phone at the end of the school day (3pm).  Email home

    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.
