Alternatives to Corporal Punishment.
Fort Wayne Community Schools, IN.
To facilitate the learning process, each school's staff must be empowered to maintain strong, consistent discipline; however, school discipline maintenance is also a total community responsibility. Whenever possible, teachers should solicit parental assistance in correcting discipline problems. Fort Wayne Community School Employees or other adults representing the school are not permitted to administer corporal punishment. When it is in the best interest of general student welfare, students may be suspended or expelled as provided by law. Consideration should be given to the nature of the offense and the subsequent penalty when imposing discipline. Further, due process guarantees, which consist of notice, evidence, and response, should be afforded to students even when not required by law. Contained within this document is one disciplinary practice prevention list and three disciplinary alternatives lists. (KM)
