Policies and Procedures


Excerpt from CCPS and Calvert Educator’s Association Negotiated Agreement:


“Article 18 Maintenance of Classroom Control and Discipline



The CCPS is committed to providing a safe learning environment for students and staff consistent with federal and state laws.


When a student is, by behavior, seriously disrupting the instructional program to the detriment of other students, the classroom teacher may temporarily remove the student from the class and refer the student to the principal or designee.  In such cases the teacher will furnish the principal, in writing, as promptly as the teaching obligation will allow, full particulars of the incident.  Prior to readmission, the principal or designee will be responsible for working with the situation. The principal will determine when the student returns to class and will make such determination after consultation with the teacher except when prevented from doing so in an emergency situation.  A response regarding disposition of referrals initiated above shall be forwarded to the teacher in writing within a reasonable time following the original submittal. “
