MTSS – 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.
The following will not be allowed in class unless an arrangement has been made with parents/guardians:
Fidget Spinners, gum, and outside food/drinks (this includes Starbucks and Polar Pops).
As a rule, cell phones will not be allowed in class, however there may be an occasional exception. The steps for a cell phone infraction are aligned with the school-wide interventions.
- Teacher will ask for phone to be put in backpack
- Student will be asked to put phone on teachers desk to be picked up at the end of the hour
- Student will be sent to the office where phone may be picked up at 3:00 (parents will be emailed/called)
- If it continues to be a problem, the parent/guardian will be asked to pick up the cell phone.
