Track Wrong Doings....

   Note to self for next year - track ALL wrong doings by students.  I have started now, but SHOULD HAVE started at the beginning of the year.  Things like why their iPads were taken away, why I had to hook it back up to Configurator, etc..  I am also dating these.  This is a SIMPLE record for yourself so you can track how many times and know EXACTLY where students stand regarding how many weeks it should be taken away.  When an iPad IS taken, Mrs. Olson, our librarian, does a FANTASTIC job recording and tracking dates so students know when they can expect it back.  She also makes sure that each iPad is charged and ready for the student each night.

  Some of you might want to know what we do here in Barnesville regarding iPad discipline - here is a summary:

*If a student does not have their picture as their lock screen, they lose it for 2 weeks, but they can use it at school and have to check it in and out of the library each night
*If a student leaves their iPad unattended, and a staff member finds it, they lose it for 2 weeks, but can use it at school and have to check in and out of the library each night
*If a student doesn't lock his/her locker, lose it for 2 weeks but can use in school and have to check in and out of the library each night
*If photos are found that are inappropriate, student loses it for 4 weeks; 2 weeks they don't get it at ALL, and then 2 weeks they can use in school and have to check in and out of the library each night
*If inappropriate sites are found, student loses it for 4 weeks; 2 weeks they don't get it at ALL, and then 2 weeks they can use in school and have to check in and out of the library each night
*If a student repeats an offense, the times listed above double, or in some cases students have lost iPads for an extended period of time determined by the administration.

  These are by no means the PERFECT situations, but the rules have to be strict enough to keep the kids accountable, yet fair so they know and follow expectations set!

Happy Thursday,
Mrs. I:)
