We have worked hard to put in place a cohesive discipline system. Students and parents are expected to work with your student’s teacher to support our system of reflection, personal responsibility, and positive choices.
Below you can see the reflection forms used in the classrooms to get the students to think about their behavior. This is to be used to open a discussion between the student and teacher. For major violations of expectations or repeated violations of the same behavior, you can also see our Discipline Referral form.
- Grade 1 Reflection Sheet
- Grades 2-4 Reflection Sheet
- Grades 5-8 Panther Process Sheet
- KTEC Disciplinary Referral
- KTEC Behavior Types
- Contract of Expectations and Conduct
- Behavior Expectation Violations
We have been sharing Love and Logic with parents and teachers throught Chat-N-Chews and staff meetings. Many parents and teachers have requested more information and resources to better understand the strategies. We have in a lending library with books, CDs, and DVDs. If you are interested in borrowing any of these materials, let the office know and we can send it home with your student.
KTEC brings a Character Education Program, based on a philosophy by Coach John Wooden, to the full preschool-8 student body.
A different character trait is discussed each month:
- September: Hard Work & Enthusiasm
- October: Friendship
- November: Loyalty & Cooperation
- December: Self-control
- January: Action & Alertness
- February: Dertermination
- March: Fitness & Skill
- April: Team Spirit
- May: Poise & Confidence
Students must have sleeves on their tops. Even though some classrooms and the playground can get toasty, tank tops and sleeveless tops are not permitted. We encourage students to bring waterbottles to keep hydrated and cool.
Other common concerns:
- Pants may not have holes or tears.
- Dresses, skirts, shorts and skorts must be at least fingertip length.
- Flip flops may only be worn by middle-school students (grades 6-8).
- Off the shoulder and see-through materials are not allowed.
- Shirts must be long enough to cover skin whether sitting or standing.
Please call the office if you have any questions regarding the dress code.
We will try to remedy the dress code infraction at school before calling parents to bring in a change of clothes (change into gym shoes, put another shirt on, etc).
