Discipline with Dignity

Discipline with Dignity is formative versus punitive

At St. Laurence, our discipline approach is based on Discipline with Dignity which is formative versus punitive. What this means is that we attempt to give our students the tools to make better choices. A presentation explaining this approach is attached below. We utilize the Good Choice Pledge which makes expectations clear as they center around the fact that WE ARE RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE AND SAFE.

In an effort to “catch” our students making good choices, we have instituted the Positive Office Referral. Students who receive one are sent to the office and get to call home to let their parent, grandparent, or guardian know that they made a good choice. They also get to sign their name on the “On a Roll” door and take their referral home.
