Discipline Policy

Section 1: Introduction

The goal of discipline is to help students develop inner controls so that they demonstrate appropriate social behavior. Everest Academy educators teach acceptable behavior to students by helping them develop self-control through positive guidance and the application of easily understood rules. Our procedures for disciplining students are designed to help them develop safe and satisfying relationships and a healthy self-image.

Per our discipline plan, students are expected to:

  • Greet by saying Asalamu Alaikum and return the greeting by Wa Alaykum ussalaam.
  • Pay due respect to elders, teachers, and fellow students.
  • Keep one’s area neat and tidy by taking care of textbooks and personal belongings.
  • Observe the etiquette of silence and worship during wudu and prayer.
  • Be mindful of appropriate voice and movement levels during transitions and in the hallways. Level 0 (complete silence) is to be demonstrated while moving in the hallways.
  • Practice proper restroom usage by sitting down to use the toilet and flush afterwards.
  • Comply with school dress code.
  • Come ready to learn with the right attitude and supplies/ materials.

Such positive behaviors are encouraged at school, and strengthened through practice at home. Parents are expected to work closely with their children to foster good disposition and responsible behavior.

Section 2: Policies and information: Maxims of Discipline

  • Positive reinforcement: Positive reinforcement is the presentation of something pleasant or rewarding immediately after a student demonstrates desirable behavior. Our educators believe that it is better to congratulate children for doing something well and thus encourage them to repeat the behavior; than to wait for them to error and punish for doing something wrong.
  • Healthy Interaction: We avoid potential conflicts by engaging students in interesting activities.
  • Individual Attention: Our teachers strive to provide care and instruction to each student based on the student’s unique strengths and needs.
  • Firm, Quiet Discipline: Children are guided calmly towards desirable behavior.
  • Responsibility: From an early age, children begin to learn responsibility by picking up after themselves and managing their belongings. At our school, children are encouraged to take pride in simple accomplishments like putting something in the trash or putting their material back on the shelf.
  • Redirection: Children with undesirable behavior are calmly redirected towards activities that engage them in more desirable and socially acceptable behavior.
  • Positive guidance: We recognize and work with each child’s unique character and physical traits to accomplish immediate and long term social, emotional, and academic goals.
  • Modeling: We teach appropriate behavior by being good example ourself.
  • Positive phrasing: Our educators comment in a positive and constructive statements rather than in negative language.

Section 3: Inappropriate Conduct

Behavior that goes against the basic Islamic ethical codes is considered inappropriate.  Failure to comply with the school dress code, possession of drugs, alcohol, tobacco, weapons, or any object that threatens to inflict bodily injury are considered serious offenses.  Using profanity, vulgar language, or making obscene gestures to fellow students, teachers or staff, committing theft, damaging school property, engaging in name calling, ethnic or social slurs, or using indecent, immoral language are some other examples of serious offenses.

Other undesirable conduct include:  fighting; running and/or making excessive noise in the building and/or classroom; refusing to follow teacher’s directions; refusing to participate in classroom activities; chewing gum; eating or drinking in non-designated areas; not bringing the required classroom materials and/or assigned work to class; misconduct in cafeteria such as misuse of food; cheating and/or copying the work of other students; chronic tardiness to school; unauthorized leaving of classroom and/or building; disrespectful or discourteous behavior; or any other misconduct which may interfere with an orderly school environment.

Section 4: Corrective Measures

Disciplinary measures are handled according to grade level and nature of seriousness of the misdemeanor. It is our goal to provide a safe and positive educational environment to all our students.  Students are expected to behave in an appropriate manner and respect other’s rights and property.  School administrators, teachers, and parents are responsible for ensuring that all children follow school rules.  It is the responsibility of principal and teachers to take corrective action for any inappropriate behavior, particularly if it deprives other students of their right to a healthy and safe environment.

Many discipline problems are avoided by the use of developmentally appropriate activities, environments, and teaching methods. Positive re-enforcement of appropriate behavior, redirection, decision-making strategies, and peaceful resolution of conflicts are practiced.

To counteract undesirable behavior, physical punishment or harsh language that might frighten or humiliate children is not used. No actions that might hurt other people or damage equipment are taken. On occasion, it may be necessary for a child to be removed from the group for a short ‘quiet time’ where the child can regain control, and rejoin the group when it is felt that he/she is ready. At no time, however, a child being disciplined is left unattended by staff. Students in early childhood grades are not punished due to toileting accidents or failure to sleep or eat.

Everest Academy makes every effort to work with the family and student when there are ongoing or severe behavioral challenges by meeting with the parents and if needed, behavior specialists. We, as a team, develop a plan for working with the student at school and at home. In order for any behavior modification plan to be effective, parent cooperation and participation is essential and therefore expected. In some instances we may ask the parent to pick up the child early or come to the school to be with their child for a short time. In the extremely rare case that all efforts have been exhausted; and dangerous, threatening, or extremely disruptive behavior still exists; or cooperation has not been shown on the part of the parent(s); school administration reserves the right to remove the child from the school either temporarily or permanently, based on their professional judgment.

Section 5: Disciplinary Interventions

Each student is part of the school community and is expected to demonstrate appropriate behavior. School environment must be kept safe, courteous, and conducive to learning at all times.

Disciplinary interventions are progressive in nature. The severity of behavior determines the level of intervention. Procedures are designed to promote positive behavior with emphasis on clear expectations. Please view our handbook for details.
