Step 3: Parent/Guardian Information:
Step 4: Discipline Policy:
The children are our first priority!
Franklin Academy's aftercare uses behavior techniques that include positive reinforcement, redirection, conflict resolution and rewards. We expect all employees to treat the children in a respectful manner and for the children, in turn, to respond in the same way. We also expect the children to show this same respect to each other and to use all equipment and facilities in an appropriate manner.
A child with a consistent behavioral problem who is not responding to his or her counselor or who exhibits extreme or dangerous behavior will be sent to the Aftercare Site Director, who will notify the child's parents and/or guardians with a Behavior Report. In extreme cases of behavior such as running away, fighting, extreme disruption, stealing, threats of violence, or destruction of school property, the parent and/or guardian may be called to pick up their child immediately and the child may be immediately suspended or dismissed from the after school program.
If the problem persists, a parent/guardian conference will be scheduled at which the areas of concern and the steps which will be taken to help improve your child's behavior will be discussed. If the situation does not improve, the child may be suspended.
- Child (ren) shall not be subjected to discipline, which is severe, humiliating, or frightening.
- Discipline shall not be associated with food, rest, or toileting.
- Spanking or any other form of physical punishment is prohibited.
We feel strongly that a positive, supportive, and structured environment promotes good behavior. A full day of varied activities is planned to direct your child's energy into positive channels. We believe that children learn from us and that we are their positive role models.
Our aftercare counselors and Site Directors/managers have a goal to help children feel good about themselves by building their self-esteem and self-confidence. Whenever discipline is necessary, corrective discipline is used to change the inappropriate behavior of the child, never to hurt or embarrass the child.
The following are the steps taken to correct inappropriate behavior in our program and to insure the safety and wellbeing of all our children:
- Counselors will first take your child aside and quietly speak to him/her about their behavior. If the inappropriate behavior warrants, the counselor will either put the child in thinking time (appropriate to their age) or if necessary, have the on-site manager speak to the child. The child will receive a verbal warning.
- A child's second serious behavior incident will result in a phone call to the parents as well as a written behavior report.
- A child's third behavior incident will result in a conference with the child's parent and the Site-Manager and possible suspension or expulsion from the program.
I have read and fully understand the Discipline Policy. I acknowledge that I can access the Franklin Academy Parent/Student Handbook through the school's website at www.franklin-academy.org at www.franklin-academy.org
We reserve the right to dismiss your child from our program in the event that a parent does not comply with our policies and/or displays inappropriate behavior towards employees or staff.
Step 5: Student Behavior Contract
understand that my child will be expected to behave in accordance with the code of conduct. Disruptive behavior or actions posing a threat or any danger to them or anyone else will result in dismissal.
