    Level 2 Behavior Consequences

    First Steps:
        - Verbal correction and review rules
        - Model appropriate behavior
        - Change seat location
        - Child writes explanation to parent
        - Make restitution
        - Loss of classroom privilege
        - Time out in classroom
        - Silent lunch
        - Time out (with work) in another teacher's room
        - Call to parent
        - Develop student contract
        - Develop daily communication plan with parent
        - Increase supervision
        - Develop plan with parent
    Classroom Discipline Form will be started on the first offense.  Specialists will be given any forms to complete if necessary.  If student only has one or two offenses within a week, the form will be filed but not sent home. 
    Other potential approaches to Level 1 and 2 behaviors:
        - Assign peer helper
        - Reward positive behaviors
        - Consult with team/guidance counselor
        - Enlist help of Home School Coordinator/Administration
        - If behaviors may be the result of academic concerns, talk with EC, Intervention
          or ESL teachers.
        - If behaviors may be the result of academic concerns, make sure all additional
          help is being accessed (tutoring/Intervention team, etc.)
    Next Step: 
    Classroom Discipline form is sent home for parent signature for students in Kindergarten - 1st grade who have 3 offenses within a day. For 2nd - 5th grade, form is sent home for signature when students have 3 offenses in a week. (Teachers will be asked to determine if there are patterns that need to be addressed.)
    If Level 2 behaviors continue after one Classroom Discipline form (for Level 2 behaviors) have been sent home in one week, behaviors are considered chronic and are seen as Level 3.
