Discipline Supports and Resources:
Just as school discipline is proactive, remote learning discipline is proactive as well.  The best way to address student behavior is through proactive connection and communication with both students and parents. Make intentional time to make connections, set expectations and procedures just as you would in the classroom, and provide instruction around unwanted behavior when necessary.

The Restorative Practices Team, in partnership with the Offices of Student Engagement and Student Discipline, has created the Restorative Responses Toolkit, a series of resources to support our school-based educators in addressing specific student behaviors with a restorative lens. Due to our circumstances of remote learning, the RP team has also developed Responsive Restorative Responses for Remote Learning for further considerations.

 Discipline Reminders: 
Please continue to refer to the Jeffco Discipline Matrix to guide your decisions.

  • We are encouraging administrators and teachers to use restorative responses to discipline instead of removing a student’s access to technology. In situations where there is a serious behavior issue, please consider the recommendations from Ed Tech and IT below. 
  • If it is necessary to remove a student’s access to technology for a day or longer, please use the current suspension practices, as removing their access would be a suspension. 
  • The maximum number of days you can remove access to education is 5 days.
