Title: Coro Lake Elementary School-wide Discipline Plan 2009-2010

Coro Lake Elementary School-wide Discipline Plan
  • 1560 Drew Road
  • Memphis, Tennessee

Guiding Principles
  • Positive student behavior is vital in achieving
    academic success.
  • Each student is a valued individual who will
    express themselves appropriately and respect the
    differences of others.
  • High expectations and standards will guide
    instruction and positive behavior in every

  • The vision of Coro Lake Elementary is to
    maintain a safe and diverse learning community
    that sets the standard for all students to
    achieve high academic, social and personal

  • The mission of Coro Lake Elementary is to
    develop lifelong learners who are confident,
    competent and productive members of society.

Philosophy Statement
  • Coro Lake Elementary School has an obligation to
    prepare its children to play a productive role in
    a democratic and technological society. We
    believe each child will have an educational
    opportunity that will develop his or her full and
    unique potential. All children have the right to
    receive instruction intended to maximize their
    special talents, skills and abilities. We
    recognize that individual differences exist and
    seek to address those differences by beginning an
    educational program that encompasses various
    learning styles.

Previous Results
  • Coro Lakes 2008-2009 goals stated that at least
    50 of students in each grade would receive at
    least one Knights Buck per week.
  • Coro Lakes 2008-2009 results were less than 50
    of students in each grade received at least one
    Knights Buck.
  • Due to the outcome of these results we have
    decided to reevaluate our incentive program and
    goals for 2009-2010.

Coro Lake Elementary 2009-2010 Goals
  • 50 of all Coro Lake students in each grade will
    be able to attend four of The Knights at the
    Round Table Celebrations.
  • 96 of all students will show perfect attendance
    throughout each 20 day period.
  • We will reduce our number of office referrals by
    25 by the end of the 2008-2009 school year.

Action Steps
  • During the 2009-2010 school year the behavior
    support team will ensure that booster training
    activities for students are based on data and are
    in place.
  • The behavior support team will also ensure that
    faculty receives monthly reports on our schools
    behavior patterns during our faculty meeting.
  • The behavior support team will establish a budget
    for on-going rewards.
  • The behavior support team will ensure that all
    staff are involved directly or indirectly in
    school wide interventions.
  • The behavior support team will also ensure that
    consequences for problem behaviors are clearly

Classroom managed behaviors versus Office managed
  • Once the students behavior is observed, the
    staff will determine what level of discipline the
    behavior is warranting. If the behavior is
    serious enough for an immediate office referral,
    the staff will call the office, write the
    referral and escort the student to the office.
  • If the students behavior is not of a level that
    warrants an immediate referral, then the staff
    should follow through with Coro Lakes
    intervention checklist.
  • The Intervention checklist includes Explaining
    class/ school rules, changing students seat,
    checking cumulative folder for history, telephone
    conference with parent, parent/teacher
    conference, letter home concerning behavior,

    stars given. Teachers are encouraged to give
    each student at least one star per week. Stars
    may be used for admission to attend the Knights
    at the Round Table Celebration. Top three
    earners per class will be announced over the
    intercom every nine weeks.
  • Classes earn stars for good behavior while in
    support classes, lunch, or the hallway by staff
    as well as the classroom teacher.
  • Student of the Week- Students portrait along
    with artifacts from home will be displayed in the
    main hallway of the school. Students will eat

PROGRAM Student Intervention and
Behavior 416-4240 Location 146SS 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 six
weeks there will be a 2 decrease in the number
of repeat offenders, resulting in a 10 decrease
by the final six weeks period. Components Academi
cs 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
Procedure for Use
