7th Grade Behavior Management Plan
Students are expected to demonstrate exemplary behavior and class preparedness. The 7th grade behavior management plan is a “Charger Card” point system with specific guidelines listed below:
Consequences are as follows:
- Students will receive a Charger Card from their homeroom teacher each nine weeks. This card must be kept in the agenda AT ALL TIMES. If the Charger Card is lost, AN ADDITIONAL 5 POINTS will be deducted from EACH class.
- Parents should refer to the Charger Card to monitor their student’s behavior.
- Students will lose points for infractions of school and classroom rules.
- 1-3 points-minor offenses (including, but not limited to: tardy to class, loitering, gum, lack of materials, retrieving materials from lockers or other classes, disruption of class, breaking a class/school rule, failure to return a signed paper after two days). Point deductions are detailed on the Charger Card.
- 4-5+ points-major offenses (including, but not limited to: inappropriate language, inappropriate hallway behavior, disrespect). Point deductions are detailed on the Charger Card.
- Charger Cards will be monitored by each individual teacher/class.
- Students must take their agenda (with the Charger Card) when leaving the classroom.
- Rewards will be given to a student who maintains sufficient levels on his/her Charger Card.
- Individual classroom teachers will assign the appropriate consequence to those students who have lost points on their Charger Card.
Consequences are as follows:
- 1st level=silent lunch
- 2nd level=detention in 7th grade
- 3rd level=detention in 7th grade
- 4th level=administrative referral
- 5th level=administration referral
- 6th level=alternative behavior plan
- We support BYOD in 7th grade. However, if a student is using a device without teacher permission, the teacher will take the device and place it in the front office for pick up by a parent. In addition, 5 points will be deducted from the Charger Card.
- Seventh grade teachers will monitor before school detention on Tuesdays in room 7A4 from 8:10-8:50 A.M. Parents will be notified of the detention via a form sent home with the student. Detention cannot be served unless the detention slip has been signed by a parent and the student arrives on time. If these guidelines are not followed, the student will be required to serve the detention at another time.
- If a student fails to attend an assigned detention, he/she will receive a make-up detention and a parent phone call. If the student fails to attend this make-up detention, the parent will be notified, and an administrative referral will be issued.
- Detentions will be reset every 9 weeks, and students will receive a new Charger Card.
- Any severe infraction (fighting, insubordination, bullying, academic dishonesty, etc.) will be a direct administrative referral. The referring teacher will notify the parent. The student will not participate in the grade-level reward.
- This plan is subject to change to meet the individual needs of our students.
- Conduct grades will be assigned as follows:
- 88-75=Needs Improvement
- 74 or below=Unsatisfactory
- An “N” or “U” in conduct in any individual teacher’s class will prohibit participation in the grade-level reward and disqualify a student from Mabry honor roll.
- A first incident of cheating will result in a failing grade on the assignment and phone contact with the parent. Points will not be deducted for cheating.
- Any second incident of cheating will result in a zero on the assignment and an administrative referral.
