Reasons for Student Removal
- When the school-wide discipline management techniques employed by the teacher in the classroom are ineffective, a teacher may remove a pupil from class in order to maintain effective classroom discipline.
Procedures for Removal
A teacher may send a student to the Head teacher’s office to maintain effective discipline in the classroom.
A teacher may remove from class a student:
- Who has been documented by the teacher to repeatedly interfere with the teacher’s ability to communicate effectively with the students in the class or with the ability of the student’s classmates to learn; or
- Whose behaviour the teacher determines is so unruly, disruptive, or abusive that it seriously interferes with the teacher’s ability to communicate effectively with the students in the class or with the ability of the student’s classmates to learn.
If the teacher removes a student from class, the head teacher shall respond by employing appropriate discipline management techniques consistent with the school’s discipline policy; he may place the student into another appropriate classroom or into in-school
The terms of the removal may prohibit the student from attending or participating in school-sponsored or school-related activities.
