The following list of core beliefs outlines the professional actions and attitudes of all staff members in this school:
Every attempt will be made to maintain the dignity and self-respect of both the student and the teacher.
Students will be guided and expected to solve their problems, or the ones they create, without creating problems for anyone else.
Students will be given the opportunities to make decisions and live with the consequences, be they good or bad.
Misbehavior will be handled with natural or logical consequences instead of punishment, whenever possible.
Misbehavior will be viewed as an opportunity for individual problem solving and preparation for the real world as opposed to a personal attack on school or staff.
Love & Logic Rules for Our School
Treat others with the same respect with which you are treated by the adults in this school.
Your actions, dress, possessions, etc., may not cause a problem for anyone else.
If your actions, dress, possessions cause a problem for anyone else, you will be asked to solve that problem.
If you cannot or choose not to solve the problem, appropriate consequences will be imposed by staff members. These consequences will depend upon the situation and the person or persons involved. Staff members will use their best judgment based upon the information they have at the time.
If students and/or parents feel that the consequences appear not to be fair, request a “due process” hearing. A due process hearing does not need to be formal in nature. It is simply a time for concerned individuals to meet together and share information related to the situation in question. In the event that this discussion provides additional information that sheds different light on the situation, or shows the consequences to be unfair, the consequences may be changed or eliminated to better fit the unique situation.
Treat me, as your teacher, with the same respect with which I treat you.
Your actions may not cause a problem for anyone else.
If you cause a problem, you will be asked to solve it.
If you cannot solve the problem or choose not to, I will do something. What I do will depend upon the situation and the person involved.
If I do something that appears to be unfair, whisper to me, “I’m not sure that’s fair,” and we will talk about it.
