Beliefs related to Discipline at Tekoppel:
We believe:

  • it is essential for teachers and staff to explicitly communicate, teach, and model appropriate behaviors that are expected of all Tekoppel students.
  • it is critical for parents to be involved to ensure that their children are using appropriate behaviors. Parents play a vital role in creating a safe, orderly, and productive learning environment for all Tekoppel Students.
  • students should be held accountable for their actions.
  • students should receive appropriate acknowledgment for using appropriate behavior.
  • one student's misbehavior should not be allowed to interfere with the learning opportunities of other students and should not excuse him/her from successfully completing the learning objectives.
  • that if teachers, staff, and parents work together to teach the P.R.I.D.E. expectations, and are consistent with their enforcement, the appropriate behaviors will become a habit. Once these behaviors become a habit, they will become a part of each student's character.
