45 ASB Middle School Handbook
• There is a second parent conference before the student can return to school.
• The student completes a Values Learning Plan focused on making amends for words or
actions (which may include community service).
• The student engages in required counseling.
• The student is placed on social probation for a determined amount of time.
In addition, a student who is involved in a serious infraction might have to meet before a
Values Learning Review Team. The team will consist of the advisor, a teacher of the students
choosing, the principal, the student’s counselor and parents.
The purpose of the meeting is to hear the student report on the incident in question and the
plan for resolution. The role of this group would be to represent the ASB community, respond
and react to the plan, and have a follow-up meeting to check progress in the determined
amount of time, to be decided by the Values Learning Review Team. The team would sign-off
on the student’s plan and could ask the student to rethink and rewrite any part of the plan,
including future consequences, if the plan is not carried through. Students would have the
opportunity to apologize in this more public forum and hear from the community. It is the
student’s responsibility to find an acceptable plan including consequences if the plan is not
carried through or if the same infraction is repeated.
The community reparation may take the form of service which will offer an opportunity for
the student to give back to the community.
When the magnitude of violation of rules of student conduct is serious, or when violations
persist in spite of counseling and/or warning of the student and parents concerned, the
Principal of the school may place the student on disciplinary probation. The Principal must
inform the Head of School of such a decision.
In all cases where a student is given disciplinary probation, the student and parents must be
informed in writing, both of the reason for the probation and the terms of that probation.
When the Principal thinks it is necessary and appropriate, the student will be recommended
Disciplinary probation may include restrictions on participation in Co-Curricular activities
and/or the requirement that some class time be spent in supervised study to strengthen the
students internalization of the rule(s) violated.
All instances of disciplinary probation must include reference to the consequences of any
further violation of the rules of student conduct, and this must be shared in writing with the
student and parents concerned.
