School Discipline Procedures



The goal of Webling is to promote wholesome school environment where each child will

develop self-discipline. To attain self-discipline, we believe children must understand the

importance of choices and the results of those choices.  Children who chose to demonstrate

acceptable behaviors will be rewarded.  Children who choose inappropriate behaviors will be

choosing negative consequences.



  1. A classroom discipline plan with classroom rules is developed and posted in the classroom by the teacher and/or grade level where students change classes.
  2. The classroom discipline plan includes focus on the following student behaviors:
    1. Respect Self
    2. Respect Others/Respect Authority
    3. Respect Property
  3. School Discipline procedures should be posted in the classroom by each teacher.
  4. Copy of classroom discipline plan and the School Discipline Procedures should be sent home to parents/guardians for signature.
  5. Copy of classroom discipline plan should be submitted to counselors and administration.




When students are not under the direct supervision of their classroom teachers and are in the

cafeteria or on the playground, those who do not follow school rules will be redirected by the adult

staff or supervisors.  The first warning will serve as reminder and students will be counseled by their classroom teachers.  If students receive a third warning the adult supervisor will send a referral to the counselor/Principal.

and be a law abiding citizen in order to succeed in school.  Chapter 19 of the Hawaii

Administrative Rules is the governing document upon which disciplinary actions will be based. 

Each case will be reviewed by a counselor or administrator, with consideration given to the age

of the child, mitigating circumstances, and the condition which the offenses were committed.
