Expectations and Grading

Classroom Discipline

   The  Martino Junior High Step System will be used in my classroom.

                 Step 1:    Warning

                 Step 2:    Written consequence

                 Step 3:    Home contact (by phone or in person)

                 Step 4:     Office referral 

When a student is disruptive to the educational environment or interferes with an other students opportunity to access to the learning process a step will be assigned. Review the Student Handbook for behaviors which bypass the Step System and result in automatic office referral.
