Welcome to Lake Weir Middle School.
LUNCH ROOM CONDUCT
Lake Weir takes pride in being a school that focuses on character education as well as academics. The positive actions of students are rewarded and as a result we have a school that often serves as a model for others to follow.
From time to time it becomes necessary to discipline children for misbehavior. All teachers are responsible for putting in place a classroom management procedure that will enhance the opportunity for learning to take place for all students.
The following interventions will be used to correct student behavior:
1. Verbal correction
2. Private conference with student
3. Change seat
4. Behavior contract
5. Parent contact
6. Refer to guidance
7. Time out
8. Conference with Dean
NOTE: Teachers are not limited to nor required to use all steps before writing a discipline referral.
REFERRAL TO DEAN’S OFFICE
A student’s failure to respond to the attempts by the teacher and parents to change or correct misconduct will result in a discipline referral being written and the student sent to the Dean’s office. Lake Weir Middle will follow the Marion County Code of Student Conduct for Elementary Schools when a child is sent to the office for disciplinary reasons.
NO TOLERANCE BEHAVIORS
2. Blatant disrespect
3. Drugs, weapons, alcohol
4. Willful disobedience/defiance
