DAEP Behavioral Expectations
Body contact of any kind will not be tolerated. Students are required to keep their hands and feet to themselves at all times unless given specific permission to perform an activity or task that involve controlled body contact. Horseplay, play fighting, high-fives, secret/creative handshakes, hand signs, patting on the back, pushing, shoving, hitting, slapping, kicking, spitting on/at another person, or other types of questionable physical contact are NOT permitted. Such behavior will be documented and result in disciplinary actions.
Students will be in line and escorted to and from class by the behavior interventionists. The teachers are responsible for academic instruction and classroom management. The Behavior Interventionists are responsible for discipline and movement during transitions, lunch and other common areas.
- Request permission for everything: Students must request permission from the behavior interventionist or teacher prior to talking, moving about the classroom/building for any reason, using the restroom, getting a drink of water, etc.
- Students may not speak to others while in line unless given permission by the teacher or behavior interventionist.
- Serious or Persistent Misconduct in DAEP: Students engaging in negative behaviors (persistently) or serious misconduct will be disciplined in accordance with the DAEP rules and the Student Code of Conduct. An additional DAEP placement may be sought for students persisting in misconduct while place at the DAEP.
- Practice the Code of Ethics at all times.
Students WILL be expected to follow all rules/regulations in this handbook and the CCISD Student Code of Conduct.
- Demonstrate respect.
- Follow all directives in a timely fashion without argument.
- Students must do assigned class work and/or homework and turn it in on time.
- Students are responsible for notifying staff when they are having difficulty with or do not understand an assignment and need extra help/tutoring.
- Before a student may leave or move about the classroom and/or campus (i.e. sharpen pencil, obtain materials, approach the teacher or staff), the student must ask the teacher and receive permission.
- Transition from class, gym, or cafeteria in single file line without talking or physical contact.
- Students may be required to leave the classroom by the Behavior Interventionist for disciplinary purposes if the behavior is disruptive to the educational process, persistent in nature, or becomes a safety issue.
Any deviation from established DAEP rules will result in loss of point, detention, suspension and, in severe cases, expulsion.
