A positive approach to discipline is our goal at Redwood.
In order to deal with a situation before it becomes a disciplinary problem, we urge parent conferences as a preventive measure in dealing with poor student behavior. Telephone conferences between parents and teachers, counselors, or administrators are encouraged as a first step in solving possible problems. Teachers may request a conference with a student's parents to discuss lack of academic achievement or poor behavior in class. Parents are urged to request a conference whenever a problem becomes apparent. The counselor is also available for conferencing, and may suggest a meeting with student, parents, all teachers and the counselor. The school administrators often initiate parent conferences for disciplinary reasons.
