Discipline Philosophy

Philosphy and Policy

In order to provide a safe and productive learning experience at Sellers School, we strive to create a climate in which optimal learning can occur. This means that we must all learn to appreciate and respect each other as well as to follow certain rules. 

At Sellers School, we believe students are responsible for their own actions at school, as well as on their way to and from school. Parents and school staff play important roles in helping children develop responsibility, if the goals of the group are to be realized. Consequences for inappropriate behavior are necessary. Orderly conduct is both a required condition and an important goal of learning. We encourage children to "stop and think" before they act.

While we are here to assist and encourage at all times, we want children to resolve their differences in an appropriate manner. In helping a child develop individual responsibility, the school has established rules and guidelines.

Student Responsibilities

  1. Respect the rights and privileges of others.
  2. Accept responsibility for his/her own actions and consequences of behavior.
  3. Abide by the authority of staff, teachers, and other adults.
  4. Make an effort to do his/her best in school.
  5. Be prompt in meeting all school responsibilities.
  6. Help maintain school and personal property free from damage and vandalism.
