Discipline at the After School Care Program
All After School Care Program students are expected to conform to the rules and regulations of DWCA. The After School Care Program is a continuation of the classroom process and uncooperative students will be disciplined according to our policies.
Lines of Authority
Teacher: The teacher is the first line of discipline in any classroom setting. In case of a disagreement, parents and students are to follow the Matthew 18:15-16 Principle.
Principal (or designated school administrator): The Principal is responsible for the discipline of students in all non-classroom settings where a student has been referred to the office by a teacher. Parent notification by phone or letter may result in a request for parents to come to school for a conference.
Mutual Respect: Respect for faculty/staff as a direct authority, teachers are to be shown respect. All school office staff, personnel are to be accorded the same respect required for teachers. This is both a biblical mandate and a common courtesy. Any form of disrespect will result in a disciplinary referral.
Faculty respect for students as a staff, we also accept our responsibility in treating students with the utmost respect and fairness. Should a student feel that a teacher has been disrespectful or unfair, he or she and the parent are encouraged to speak to the teacher first. If that is unsuccessful, the student and parent should then appeal to the Principal.
Student respect for fellow students: Verbal abuse or harassment of another student is totally incompatible to our Christian Ethics. Treat others as you would have them treat you.
Complaint or Problem Procedure: Matthew 18 Principle Occasionally during the course of a year, misunderstandings or problems can arise between the teacher and a student, teacher and parent, parent and the office staff, or any one of several other possibilities. School personnel at every level are committed to resolving problems one on one in a spirit of Christian love and respect. Dynamic Works Christian Academy School’s policy for dealing with such situations is constituent with the teachings found in Matthew 18:15-22 and Matthew 5:21-24. Much prayer should precede any attempt to deal with a problem. Complaints or problems will be considered in no other way than prescribed below, unless they involve a specific disciplinary action taken by the School.
First, all questions, problems or complaints regarding a teacher or other school personnel should be brought directly to the person involved before anyone else is consulted.
If the situation cannot be resolved at this level through direct contact, it should then be brought to the Principal, if the Principal is not the person with whom the problem exists. This will result in a face-to-face Principal/Parent/Teacher Conference.
Rules for Conferences/Interaction with DWCA Staff In order to effectively resolve differences that parents may have with school staff, the following rules must be adhered to in conferences or interaction with school personnel.
Mutual respect for everyone in the conference is expected. The conference or discussion will be about your student only.
Unfounded or absurd allegations will not be made.
Due to the confidential nature of each student’s records, including discipline, information about another student will not be released.
Communication with staff must be within their normal working hours. According to our Matthew 18 policy of conflict resolution, you must first go to the teacher or staff member and talk to them and work to resolve the difference before involving school administration. If these rules are not adhered to by a parent, the conference or discussion will end and the action taken by school personnel will stand.
