The Planning Room, located in the office area, near both the Guidance and Principals offices, is aplace where students who have broken school rules can safely discusstheir behavior and learn to make positive choices in the future.The Planning Room Director is Georgene Grover. Georgene works with students from Kindergarten through 8th grade.
Students are sent to the Planning Room when they have exhausted the discipline sequence that the team has in place. They may also be sent directly from the playground, cafeteria, or other areas of the building by any adult.
When students come to the Planning Room, they are guided through a series of questions designed to help them take responsibility for the choices they have made, gain insight about their behavior and choose more wisely in the future. Consequences are often developed to be directly related to the incident whenever necessary. The student and/or staff then makes a phone call to their parent or guardian to discuss the incident and their success plan for making better choices in the future. A good success plan will focus only on those things that are within the student's control.
The Planning Room Director has three overall goals:
·Toestablish and maintain consistent expectations for behavior throughout the school.
·To help students become responsible members of the school community.
·To pro-actively foster a positive school climate.
