URSA MINOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

336 Hoonah Street - Fort Richardson, Alaska 99505  (907) 428-1311

Wendy Brons, Principal

 

 DISCIPLINE POLICY

 

The Ursa Minor Staff, Students and Families are committed to providing a positive learning environment by promoting and modeling respectful, responsible, and safe behaviors school-wide and in our community.

The primary concern of the school is to create and foster a safe learning environment where everyone has access to achieve his or her greatest potential.  This environment will allow all students the opportunity for academic, social, and emotional growth.  A structured discipline policy allows students to develop a concept of self-worth by giving them the opportunities to make decisions.  Students who experience consistent, logical, and realistic consequences for their actions learn that they have positive control over their lives.  Students can then make decisions based on forethought.  A discipline policy that spells out expected behaviors and consequences offers students the opportunity to own the problem and solution.  The Ursa Minor discipline policy will help students develop the ability to exercise self-control and self-discipline both in and out of the social setting

 

The following School-Wide Behavioral Expectations are to be observed:

 

BE SAFE

 

  • Use safe, non-violent actions at all times. 

  • No roughhousing, pushing, shoving, tripping; keep hands, feet and all objects to self; and no running in building.
