  • The purpose of Orleans Elementary School is to
    develop our students academically, socially,
    emotionally, and physically to the best of their
    abilities. Therefore, the parents as well as the
    students, must realize that educational
    opportunities will not be available to those
    students who do not try to benefit from school
    attendance and whose continuing disruptive
    behavior hinders the progress of other pupils.
    The primary objective of classroom discipline is
    to insure proper work and learning conditions for
    all students.
  • It is expected that teachers will maintain a
    standard of student behavior, which is consistent
    with Board Policy, and standards established by
    the principal and other teachers at Orleans
    School. All children can be corrected or helped
    by all teachers or any adult working on the
    staff, if necessary. We all are here for the
    benefit of the students,
  • It is each teachers responsibility to promote
    respect for authority, to prompt prompt and
    regular attendance and to expect desirable
    behavior or conduct from the students.
    Discipline must be maintained in order for
    learning to take place.
  • Every effort will be made to instill in Orleans
    students the idea of self-discipline and respect
    for the rights of others. Proper conduct is
    required of all students at Orleans School.
    Principals and teachers are charged with the
    responsibility of using any necessary Board of
    Education policies or procedures in regard to
    discipline in order that schools can function

PROGRAM Student Intervention and
Behavior 416-7880 Location 043 Goal To create
an educational environment where students are
held accountable for their actions, learn the
skills and attitudes necessary to prevent
misbehavior and act appropriately when they
return to the regular classroom. Objectives 10
reduction in the amount of suspensions as
compared to the previous school year. Each nine
weeks there will be a 2 decrease in the number
of repeat offenders, resulting in a 10 decrease
by the final nine weeks period.
Components Academics Students will complete
academic assignments while assigned to ISS to
ensure continued academic progress. Social Skills
Students will receive social skills/character
education training by ISS teacher, professional
counselor and/or other mental health
professionals. All ISS teachers will receive
training in the MCS Character Education Model.
Service Learning Students will participate as
resources are available in their school
community. Alternative Student Transition
Student will spend a specified period in the ISS
program upon their return from the Alternative
Program. This period will allow students to
receive orientation regarding policies/procedures,
strengthen pro-social skills, and form a
positive relationship with school staff. This
will afford administrators, teachers and
counselors the opportunity to plan appropriate
interventions for students and integrate them
back into the school community. Reconnection
Students will have an opportunity to reconcile
with the adult and/or student with whom they had
conflict. This can be facilitated through
written communication and/or a mediation
session. Evaluation The following areas will be
formally evaluated recidivism rate, ISS
teacher/administration satisfaction, individual
teacher referral rate, and suspension rate. MCS
Research and Evaluation will assist with the
design of this component.
Selection of Students Students will be assigned
to an In-School Suspension for an infraction that
warrants an out of school suspension. Only
administrators can refer students to the ISS
program. ISS should be utilized as one of the
interventions available in the disciplinary
continuum. Students should be assigned for a
period of 1-3 days. Conditions Administrators
have the discretion to increase the length of
stay or utilize other disciplinary actions if a
student does not adhere to ISS rules and
regulations. ISS capacity should not exceed
15-20 students per day. Conclusions The Memphis
City Schools ISS Program is an extension of the
classroom/school discipline plan which seeks to
help students improve behavior while remaining in
an educational setting. This strategy provides a
specific disciplinary action a school can utilize
to assist with students displaying inappropriate
behavior. ISS is a positive approach that
prioritizes the needs and long-term goals of
