Disciplinary Action

Discipline for participating Pima JTED students shall be in accordance with the Pima JTED policies when the student is present in a JTED central campus course/activity. Discipline issues will be reported to the Pima JTED Superintendent or Superintendent designee, who will also notify the student’s home school of said disciplinary action/infraction.

Concurrently, when a student is present at his/her home school campus, student discipline is then in accordance with the home school’s established policies.

All disciplinary actions taken at either Pima JTED or the home schools may be reciprocal.

Classroom Discipline Plans/Course Expectancy

At the beginning of each new term and with each new student, teachers will take time to explain Pima JTED’s and their individual classroom rules and the progressive consequences for violating rules. A copy of this plan will be available to each student, and he/she will be expected to adhere to all classroom rules and regulations. Students who refuse to accept the teacher’s consequences for violations will be subject to immediate referral to the Superintendent designee.
