Status Of Employment

Substitute teachers are employed as part-time staff on an on-call, as-needed basis to fill in for regular teachers who are absent for various reasons (i.e. illness, conference, workshop, leaves of absence, etc.). Although Rockwood School District has a fairly steady demand for substitute teachers, the nature of the work is quite varied. Therefore, substitutes must possess flexibility in being available and willing to teach in different assignments and school locations. Substitute must sub 10 or more days each semester to maintain an active status. The performance of substitute teachers will be reviewed periodically by principals and/or the Human Resources Department. *** Substitute teachers who wish to return the following year should respond to the retention letter and by completing and returning the packet of information sent out in June.

Payment Of Substitute Teachers

The pay of substitute teachers is set by the Board of Education upon recommendation by the Superintendent of Schools. The daily rate for 2012 - 2013 is $90.50 per day for substitute teaching performed or 0.5 this amount for a half day ($45.25). Substitute teachers are not eligible for any other benefits than the designated wage rate. Substitute teachers do not get holiday or snow day pay. Please note that if school is dismissed early due to weather, substitutes will be paid as if the school day was an early dismissal day. Certified substitutes who teach on an extended basis (10+ days) in the same class, as the lead teacher, shall receive additional pay. This is considered a long-term assignment. The pay rate is as follows below. There is no retro pay. Half days are added together to make 1 full day. Substitute must have an active Missouri teaching certificate in the required subject to be eligible for long term assignments. $ 90.50 a day for a full day - days 1-10 $119.48 a day for a full day (consecutive assignment) ­ days 11 -30 $145.24 a day for a full day (consecutive assignment) ­ days 31+ Substitute Incentive Any substitute that completes 80 full days of substitute teaching in the district will receive an increased rate of pay. Starting with the 81st day, the daily rate will be $106.00 daily for the remainder of the school year. * Half ­ days are added together to equal a full day. * The incentive is only for the school year (August 2012- May 2013) Substitute teachers are eligible for mileage reimbursement if they sub for a traveling teacher. A mileage form is located on page 41. Contact the Substitute Office for the appropriate form and/or additional information. Substitute teachers are paid bi-weekly. Payments will be made via direct deposit into either savings or checking accounts. Rockwood's pay schedule is listed on page 8. Examples of pay stubs are included as a reference on pages 10 & 11.

The amount withheld is determined by your W-4 forms. Also, substitute teachers must be covered by Social Security. The law requires payment of Social Security taxes by the Board of Education for all employees who are not members of the retirement system.

General Procedures and Responsibilities

Substitute Teacher Assignments

All arrangements for substitute teachers must be made through SubFinder. This will ensure proper payment.

SubFinder 1-866-799-5277 https://rockwood.SubFinderonline.com

The Rockwood School District uses computer software to obtain substitute teachers. During orientation, substitutes will be given information on how to use SubFinder. You will be assigned a personal identification number (PIN) when your profile has been added to SubFinder. This PIN allows you access to the phone and web systems. The following steps will be taken to fill an assignment. Rockwood employees will call or log in to SubFinder and report their absence. SubFinder randomly calls substitute teachers whose profile matches the vacancy during the call-out periods. Substitute's may also find jobs on SubFinder's website. Teacher's may also request a specific substitute. You must get the job number or you do not have the job. If a job is cancelled you will receive a cancellation notice by phone. If the job is cancelled at the last minute and you do not receive notification prior to your arrival at the school you will receive either one hour show up pay or a different job if one is available. If you encounter problems, please contact the Sub Office at (636) 733-2044. The Sub Office hours are 5:30 AM - 2:00 PM on school days.

Reporting for Substitute Duty

Substitute teachers are required to start the school day thirty minutes prior to the first bell period (20 minutes prior to 1/2 day PM). Bell times are on page 23-25. If you cannot arrive on time, or with-in an hour of accepting the job you need to call the building. Building contact numbers and locations are listed on pages 16-17. Please park in the staff parking lot. When you arrive, report to the office to check-in with the SubFinder secretary. You will be given any special instructions concerning the daily schedule, announcements, absentee reports, drill procedures, and keys. Often this information is compiled in a substitute folder that should be returned to the office at the end of your assignment. If you are only scheduled to sub for a 1/2 day AM job you may be asked if you would like to fill any unfilled jobs around the district for the afternoon. Legibly complete the sign-in form with your name, job number, and the teacher's name. You may get directions to the classroom. Generally lesson plans, seating chart, and other needed items will be located in the classroom. The teacher will designate where to find these items. If you received special instructions through SubFinder, make sure to bring them with you.

General Teaching Responsibilities

The primary objective of the substitute teacher's work is to provide for the continuity of the instructional program as planned by the regular classroom teacher. It is our hope that an effective learning climate will be maintained as well as good supervision. All substitute teachers are required to assume duties as the principals may direct. The general teaching responsibilities of the substitute teacher include any supervisory or extra-duty assignment of the regular teacher. Substitutes are expected to remain in the building for the entire assignment ­ even if the beginning or end of the assignment is a planning period. You may be asked to sub in another room during this time.

Guidelines from Teachers and Principals

Although substitute teaching situations may vary widely, there are several general guidelines which will contribute to a successful experience. The following statements represent a summary of suggestions from regular classroom teachers, principals and experienced substitutes.

Planning and Organizing

Follow the regular teacher's plans closely as directed by the regular teacher. Maintain accurate records of attendance and other reports. Follow the seating arrangement and other routine procedures established by the teacher. Check the safety and fire drill procedures for your room. Generally, these procedures will be posted on the bulletin board. Ask for verbal interpretation if you don't understand or cannot find the procedures. If a fire drill or intruder/lockdown drill occurs, take the class grade book/roster with you. Check attendance once at the designated location and keep students calm and under control.

Punctuality

Arrive on time for your assignment; (30 minutes before 1st bell or 20 minute before an afternoon assignment) bell schedule on pages 23-25. If you receive a late morning call; call the building to let them know when you will be arriving. Be prompt in following the daily schedule and in releasing students for their scheduled activities, for lunch, and dismissal at the end of the day. Do not release students early.

Classroom Management and Student Supervision

The substitute teacher has the primary responsibility for classroom management and the supervision of students in activities outside of the classroom. Be positive and give encouragement in relations with your students. State your expectations and maintain firm control from the beginning. Never allow students to use your first name. Substitute teachers are to follow the classroom management system established by the regular teacher and the school. If a student becomes insubordinate or unmanageable, seek direct assistance from the principal. In no case should the substitute teacher administer corporal or any type of physical punishment. Avoid making threats of punishment, and especially group punishment, which will be impossible to enforce. Do not use profanity. Check with the principal to see what alternatives are available to cope with behavior problems. If a student in your room becomes ill or is injured, notify the principal's office immediately. Do not move students who are unconscious or seriously injured. Students should get all medication from the school nurse unless the principal directs otherwise. Students should not be left unattended during the regularly scheduled class periods. If emergencies arise, send a student messenger or obtain the assistance of a regular teacher in a room nearby or the office.

Closing Out at the End of the Day

Each substitute teacher is required to make a brief written report at the end of the school day to report on lessons covered, student work completed or unfinished, and comments related to any specific difficulties encountered. This statement should be filed with the lesson plans and returned to the desk or the place designated by the teacher or principal. Papers and homework collected from pupils should be organized, labeled, and placed with the lesson plans. Before leaving the room, place instructional materials and equipment in their proper storage areas; close and lock windows; adjust shades; and lock the door if keys are available. Check out through the principal or the school secretary, returning keys and any other materials requested by the office. If you are to substitute more than two or three days, it may be helpful to contact the regular teacher by phone to check on your daily progress and to seek additional help on lesson plans. The principal should be informed of any unusual incidents which occurred during the day, especially those which may necessitate a conference with either students or parents.

14

15

Professional Ethics

Maintain high standards of ethics in your relationship with students, parents, and teachers. Be respectful of student opinions but discourage students from discussing personal family problems with the class. Avoid making negative comments about the lesson or the methods suggested by the regular classroom teacher. Whenever you encounter serious problems or concerns, discuss these directly with the building principal. The principal will be considerate of your suggestions and is always interested in improving the quality of the educational program.

Ten Substitute Trouble Spots

Use of inappropriate language/profanity Touching children while disciplining or redirecting behavior Inappropriate use of the cell phone or computer Disclosing too much personal information Leaving assignment early or reporting late Failing to leave a written summary Late cancellations Poor classroom management skills Failing to follow procedures Failing to ask questions about the building's expectations

G.) Rockwood Polices, Regulations, and Procedures Mileage Reimbursement

If the regular teacher, for whom the substitute teacher is serving, is paid mileage expense as a part of his/her daily teaching duties, then the substitute teacher will be reimbursed for the amount of mileage normally given to the regular teacher on the day substituted, if the substitute actually traveled the mileage of the regular teacher. This reimbursement is for mileage between schools during the school day for following a Rockwood teacher's traveling schedule, and does not include travel to and from work. The form to complete for mileage is on page 40. It is important that you record your mileage on the Mileage Reimbursement Report. You should include teacher's name, date, schools, and job number. If $25.00 is not accumulated in mileage during the school year, payment will not be made until the end of the school year. Mileage is reimbursed at the IRS determined rate. If you have questions, contact the Sub Office, 636733-2044.

Earthquake Preparedness Plan Summary

Earthquakes are unpredictable and strike without warning. Most earthquake injuries are usually caused by falling debris, building collapse or damage, flying glass from broken windows, overturned furniture, ruptured gas and electrical lines. Should an earthquake occur follow these precautions: Keep calm ­ Don't panic--Do not rush outside Stay where you are ­ DO NOT TRY TO ENTER OR EXIT the building DURING the earthquake. Be aware that the sprinkler system may be activated, the fire alarms may ring, and the electricity may go out. If you are inside the building during the earthquake: Keep calm; Do not rush outside Seek shelter immediately under a heavy desk or table or brace yourself inside a door frame. Stay away from glass, windows, and anything that may fall and hurt you. Expect to hear noise from; broken glass, cracking walls, and falling objects. If you are outside the building during the earthquake: Keep calm; Stay outside Move as far away from the building and other structures as possible Do Not go near street lights, power lines, cars, fences, trees, or other structures Immediately after the earthquake: Be prepared for shockwaves Do not use the phones unless it is an emergency Remain in the same "safe" location for several minutes after the earthquake in case of aftershocks; Check for injuries Don't move any injured person who is seriously injured unless there's an imminent threat of death or further injury. Do not attempt to evacuate or leave your immediate area unless absolutely necessary or until instructed to do so. Evacuation Procedures: (if possible evacuate using the path outline for Fire Evacuation) Turn off all electrical equipment Bring emergency folders with you Do not leave anyone behind, assist those with injuries Do not re-enter the building once outside.

Tornado Preparedness

Tornado WARNING ­ announced when tornado funnel-shaped clouds are seen and reported to the weather service. Tornado WATCH ­ announced when weather conditions are such as to make formation of tornadoes highly possible. Alarm System Used ­ Tornado Warning Forecasts ­ transmitted as quickly as possible to entire building. Public Address system is preferable. Should PA fail, use alarm (not to be confused with fire alarm) Tornado Watch Forecasts ­ faculty can be notified by personnel visit or code word over intercom. Code word should be indicated in the Crisis Planning Checklist. Monitor weather alert receiver Post lookout ­ usually to the southwest. Shelter Area ­ a copy of the building tornado plan should be included in your Crisis Handbook. Instructions for teachers, students, and additional staff members; Be alert for instructions and follow them When alarm sounds, keep clam and quiet while going to and remaining in shelter. Students and staff should assume "duck & cover" position. A protective position entails kneeling down and covering the back of the head with hands in order to be protected from any flying debris. Post the location of the shelter to be used by each room in the room. Provide accessibility for teachers to first aid kits so that they may be able to treat any injuries. In case of major disaster, identify a place for injured. Provide for checking restrooms, vacant rooms, and locker rooms. Teachers will take class record books for student accountability. Custodian will be responsible to shut off gas and electricity (real tornado) Secretary will secure all records and office valuable in vault or other safe place. If time does not permit for the preceding instructions: Go to inside wall of room Lie on floor under desk or heavy furniture and cover head with hands and arms

Playground Supervision Guidelines

Specific written guidelines should be written outlining proper supervision guidelines. Such guidelines may include: 1. Keep Your Back to the Wall - When students are scattered throughout the area, teachers are tempted to stand in the middle of the area and interact with only students around them. Half of the class/group is then out of sight or contact. - Avoid "favorite" spots and gravitating to chat with others. - To ensure that every student can be observed, move continually throughout the area, staying around the perimeter of the space ("back to the wall"). Scan Frequently - When paying attention to students who need help, ask for attention, etc. the remainder of the group is unsupervised for that period. Allow for no more than 8 - 10 seconds of focused attention between scans of the area. Move Around Quickly - Identify areas of highest risk and supervise these areas without losing contact with the rest of the group by moving toward, away from, then back to the higher hazard area. Be Unpredictable - Avoid traveling in the same path and at the same pace. Keeping your "back to the wall" but avoid repeated circles around the area. Move in a manner that does not allow students to predict your movement. Provide Across-Space Interactions - Even when teachers are moving continuously and scan the class/group, frequently it is a challenge to observe students across large distances. One way to decrease large distances is to provide across-space interaction. Students will know that although they are far away, their behaviors are still being monitored. An important consideration is the high risk area and/or the risk taking, aggressive child. Be Aware of Unsafe or Disruptive Behavior - Be aware of safe practices and teach or reinforce these behaviors to students. Immediately stop any unsafe behavior. Distribute Attention Equitably - Not only time focused on the less coordinated, shy, etc. student but equitable time for the skilled, adventuresome child. Imagine What a Visitor Would Think - "What would a visitor think if he or she walked into the area, playground, and classroom right now?' Investigate and Document Accidents - Develop a habit of noting accidents and finding out how they happened, no matter how slight the injury. This can help the teacher and the school identify unsafe acts, behaviors, and develop plans to prevent future accidents.

2. 3. 4. 5.

6. 7. 8. 9.

In addition, all supervisors should be instructed to "supervise" and not gather and have their own conversation.

Finally, the following staff/student ratios should be utilized. Kindergarten - 2nd grade 3rd grade - 5th grade 6th grade to 8th grade 1 supervisor for every 25 students 1 supervisor for every 25-50 students 1 supervisor for every 50-75 students

Snow Day/ School Cancelation

QUESTION: If school is canceled due to inclement weather, how will staff be notified? If school is cancelled due to inclement weather, a voice message from Dr. Borchers will be sent to all RSD staff via AlertNow. The text of those messages will address the closure or non-closure of district offices. QUESTION: Will a message be placed on SubFinder about school cancellation? A message will be added to the greeting of SubFinder phone system about school cancellations. A message will NOT be added to the website. A message will also be posted on the Rockwood School District website about any school cancellations. www.rockwood.k12.mo.us QUESTION: Will SubFinder call out to cancel scheduled jobs? No. The jobs will be cancelled, but the system will NOT call to notify you. Procedure for School Closing: 1. School may be closed due to inclement weather under two situations: a) Prior to the opening of school with the closing effective for an entire day. b) Prior to the end of the day when developing conditions merit an early dismissal of school. 2. When school is to be closed for an entire day, the decision will be made prior to 5 a.m. and communicated to all affected parties as soon as possible. When possible, the decision will be made by 10 p.m. on the previous night. You will receive an AlertNow phone call notifying you that school has been cancelled. 3. When school is dismissed early due to rapidly deteriorating conditions, the decision will depend upon the situation; however, it is recognized that activating the transportation system takes time. If it appears possible that this procedure will be implemented, First Student and Atlantic Express will be alerted. Principals will be informed about the situation as early as possible. When such a decision is under consideration, principals should encourage parents to pick up their children at their earliest convenience. The order of dismissal shall be as follows: a) All students -- elementary, middle, and high school ­who walk to and from school may leave immediately. Elementary students who walk or ride buses should be dismissed as per the instructions provided by parents for an early inclement dismissal situation. In addition, all students picked up by their parents may leave school as soon as the parents arrive. b) Schools will be dismissed according to their normal dismissal order, and students will be released as soon as individual First Student buses are available at their school. Principals should organize the students according to specific buses so they can load as soon as the individual buses arrive. Students at the Center for Creative Learning Center should be picked up by buses from the students' home schools and delivered to the home schools so they can be taken home on regular routes. c) All students who ride Atlantic Express buses are to be dismissed and leave as soon as the buses are available. d) All high school students who drive or ride in an automobile are to be dismissed and will be allowed to leave after the buses have been loaded and have departed.

Early Childhood Program - Substitute Guidelines

Thank you for your interest in working in the Early Childhood Department. The following is an overview of the classroom day and the procedures in the classroom for Full Day and Half Day Preschool programs. Staffing In early childhood, we always have a minimum of two staff members in the classroom. The Full Day Preschool program has 18 children enrolled in the classroom. The Half Day Preschool program has 14 children enrolled. The children are ages three through five. All teachers in the classroom are to be physically able to lift children. Children must be directly supervised at all times. This includes restrooms. Coordinate your location in the classroom with the other staff person to make sure all children are in view. The substitute's role in the Full Day or Half Day classroom: The substitute may work as an assistant. The assistant who regularly works in the classroom, and who knows the children, may be the lead teacher. Daily Schedule The daily schedule provides a structure for the events of the day ­ a structure that loosely defines how children use the areas and what type of interactions children have with peers and adults during particular times. Center Choice Time ­ This is generally the longest period of the day. It is designed to build on and strengthen children's natural interests, capacity for initiative, and problem solving skills. The children choose and work among the different areas of the room. The teachers move about the classroom assisting children, asking open-ended questions, and extending their plans. Small Group Time ­ This time is reserved for activities that the teacher has chosen for a particular purpose. Small groups consist of 4-9 children. Large Group Time ­ This time should build a sense of community for children. Children and adults come together for singing, movement, and music activities, stories, class voting, and decision-making opportunities. Outside Time ­ This time of the day is designed for vigorous, noisy, physical play. Children need to be closely supervised during outdoor time. Additional games, materials and equipment often extend the outside choices. Children need to be accompanied by teachers at all times. If a child needs to go to the restroom, an adult must accompany them. Please notify the other teacher before you leave the playground with a child. The first aid kit should be taken outside and kept with an adult. Transition Time ­ Transitions are times when children move from one activity to another. Examples of transitions are; when children arrive for the day, cleaning up after activities, preparing for snacks and/or lunch, and lining up to go outside, bathroom, etc. We use fun songs, finger plays, stories, or conversation to help children move from one activity to another. Snack Time ­ This is a time for children and adults to sit down together and enjoy healthy snacks in a supportive social setting. Be sure to check the daily schedule and lesson plan for the day. Communication With other staff members: when in doubt, ask the other adult in the classroom. Be a positive role model for the children. Inform the other staff member if you need to leave the classroom. With families: Always be courteous, greet families and introduce yourself. With children: Be positive and give encouragement. Avoid making threats of punishment. Encourage children and offer support. Get down on their eye level when speaking with them. Accident Procedures In the event of an accident: Act quickly and calmly. Administer appropriate first aid and reassure the child. If needed, reassure the other children that the injured child is being taken care of. The school nurse may be available during school hours; please check in the office upon arrival. Substitutes may only apply ice and/or use soap and water when administering first aid. A Student Event Report is completed for all scrapes, bumps, etc. If the injury is of a more serious nature, the substitute should contact the school nurse or program supervisor. The Student Event Report and the District Incident Report are to be completed. If the injury is serous and emergency care is needed, call the nurse, call 911, the family, and then the program supervisor.

36

37 Medication A substitute may not administer medication. Routine medication is to be stored in a locked location away from the children. Emergency rescue medication is stored in the red emergency backpack along with the health plan and medical orders. If you have a child needing medication, please contact the nurse or program supervisor. Hygiene All substitutes, preschool staff members, and children need to wash hands with soap and water before: Preparing, handling, or serving food Before and after eating meals and snacks After coming in from outdoor play After using toilet facilities After helping a child with toileting/diapering After handling classroom pets After handling used tissues Young children may need reminders about washing hands. Some children may be in diapers. Substitutes may be requested to change diapers. Follow the diaper procedure posted in the children's restrooms. Please be cautious of choking hazards around children. Child Guidance Policy In the preschool programs, discipline is viewed as an ongoing process through which a child is helped to develop inner control. The emphasis is placed on acquiring positive social skills, problem-solving strategies, and the ability to see another's perspective. The philosophy is based on respect for the child's self esteem, setting reasonable limits and consequences, and encouraging increased self-discipline, while also promoting respect for others. The following are some specific techniques used to implement this philosophy: Preventing potential problems. When you see tensions rising, intervene early to redirect children positively. However, conflict will occur. When it does, the following strategies are used: Discussion/explanation Redirection Positive reinforcement Encouragement rather than competition, comparison, or criticism Group meeting/discussion Teacher proximity Distraction Facilitation of problem solving Our universal school rules are: We take care of ourselves, each other, our school and our world. Safety Create a system for keeping track of all children at all times. Always know the number of children in your care. Children may never be left unattended (examples: playground and restrooms). Children may only be released to authorized adults. Identification needs to be checked for release of a child if the teacher cannot identify the person. Compare identification to the "Car Pool Permission" slip located in the emergency bag (Half Day) or "Child Pick-Up Permission" form in the white notebook (Full Day). Prepare for the day by checking for the location of: Non- Latex gloves Student Health and Allergy Alerts Evacuation procedures Red Emergency Backpack Food Services Staff members (including substitutes) must have a Hepatitis A immunization to prepare and distribute snacks. Tables are to be sanitized before and after snacks and/or lunch using the 3-step method. Please contact the Preschool Supervisors with any emergency concerns: Early Childhood Michael Barla, Director Half Day Preschool Faith Williamson, Supervisor Full Day Preschool Patty Gillis, Supervisor 636.207.2600 636.207.2600 ext 272 636.861.7772 ext 323

Substitutes should eat lunch before scheduled start time. Substitutes sign in and out in school office AND in the Adventure Club area. Universal precautions will be observed in Adventure Club. All District policies will be observed in Adventure Club. LEARNING ENVIRONMENT Adventure Club curriculum reflects that children learn best when the curriculum is diverse and all areas of a child's development play a part: physical, social, emotional and cognitive. Children are helped to learn to use language to communicate thoughts and feelings, to listen and to solve conflicts. During the Kindergarten sessions, activities are planned to reinforce the experiences of their Kindergarten class. During all sessions of Adventure Club (Before School, After School, and Kindergarten), developmentally and age appropriate activities are planned. These activities are relevant and accurately reflect the background and culture of the children enrolled. Gross motor play is available daily in the gym or outside, or both, encouraging the children to develop physical coordination and release energy. While children help plan, clean up and eat snacks, they learn responsibility, social skills and why their bodies need a balanced diet and nutritious foods. ROOM ARRANGEMENT The Adventure Club rooms or areas are arranged in activity centers with appropriate materials designed to allow the children to make choices and decisions, as well as to foster inquiry, discovery and learning through different types of play. The emphasis is always on choice. Children should have many opportunities to make choices during the time they spend in Adventure Club. The following areas are examples of activity centers in each Adventure Club. CONSTRUCTION Usually the largest center, this area is arranged to encourage creative and cooperative play. The center contains: wooden blocks, cars and trucks, block accessories (animals, people, traffic signs), small playhouse, airport, garage, firehouses, etc. DRAMATIC PLAY Dramatic play is an important part of children's learning. It helps them understand themselves and the world around them. The dramatic play center is arranged to give children opportunities to act out familiar situations. This area contains the following equipment: housekeeping furniture and equipment, full-length mirror, dolls, doll bed, etc. This center changes throughout the year; often by theme, becoming a service station, restaurant or a campsite. WRITING Journal writing and cooperative book writing are among the activities planned. Story and sharing times are part of the daily routine. This center is usually equipped with paper, pencils, stamps, computers, story starters, etc.

38

39 DISCOVERY Here children can observe, classify, pattern, experiment and engage in sensory experiences. By playing board games children learn math skills, language and social skills. This center usually contains magnifiers, microscopes, prisms, pattern tiles, sensory table, geo boards, magnets, etc. CREATIVE Art activities help develop fine motor coordination, manipulation and observation skills. Young children expand their minds through comparison, patterning, exploration and discovery. (For example; when the colors red and blue are mixed to make purple.) Young children need daily opportunities to enjoy and create with a variety of media. Materials available in this center include: easels, paints, brushes, sponges, pipe cleaners, crayons, markers, scissors, paste, glue, paper and a variety of other materials. QUIET Many children need quiet blocks of time during their out-of-school time. This area provides the child with an opportunity for quiet, relaxed activities. Materials help to develop visual discrimination, hand-eye coordination, and an appreciation of books and stories. The area may contains: soft materials (cushions, pillows, throws, stuffed animals), story and picture books, puzzles, felt boards, Etch A Sketch, etc. STUDENT GUIDANCE In the Rockwood Adventure Club Program, discipline is viewed as a continuous process through which a child is helped to develop self control. The emphasis is placed on acquiring positive social skills, problem solving strategies and the ability to see another's perspective. The philosophy is based on respect for children's self-esteem, setting reasonable limits and consequences and encouraging increased self-discipline, while also promoting respect for others. To provide a safe, positive learning environment, the staff helps familiarize each child with classroom rules and expectations. When a child's behavior does not meet acceptable standards, staff member will consider the following circumstances: Child's age and developmental level Child's past behaviors and pattern of behavior Child's attendance Seriousness of the difficulty/problem/harm Certain behaviors are clearly unacceptable. Disciplinary action is taken when a child: Fails to recognize the authority of an adult and is disrespectful verbally or physically. Hurts another child, adult, or self Uses inappropriate language Destroys toys, books, etc. Remember, at all times, that children rely on us for guidance. You are a role model and should always set a good example. Children should not be denied snack as a punishment or consequence. In order to provide a positive environment, the term "shut up" should never be used. Ask children for suggestions to improve their behavior if a problem arises. Positive behavior should be noted and acknowledged. Logical consequences are appropriate. For example: If a child spills his drink, he should clean up the spill. "Time out" is only used when children need time to regain control of themselves. Remember, respect must be given in order to be gained from the children.
