I received a new student on Monday. I've been that kid (transferring in at the end of a school year), and I know it's hard, so I try to make it a smooth transition. Monday seems to go normally. After school on Monday, I actually received the paperwork she entered our school with. Turns out she was kicked out of her previous school for assaulting an adult school employee. Ooookkkaayyy. I can deal with that. Perhaps there were extenuating circumstances. I do NOT let that change the way I interact with her. Tuesday morning, somehow, on our computerized grading system, a notice comes up (I honestly don't know how - not sure I was supposed to see it) with a list of her TWELVE disciplinary referrals from her previous school - infractions ranging from extreme classroom disturbance to assault on a child to assault on an adult to theft, etc. Okay. I'm concerned, but I still do not change my attitude toward her. Today our school was DIBELs testing, so I was in the library and had a sub in my classroom. According to the sub, this child not only slapped one of my students in the face when he attempted to help her clean up a mess that she had created, but also deliberately slammed the head of one of my girls into a brick wall, because she wouldn't let her "cut" in line (cutting is against school/class policy)! When I learned of this behavior, I caught up with the sub, and we informed my P, who stated that she would create the (online) discipline referral document. I just entered the conduct grades for today, and the referral has yet to be entered. What would you do in these circumstances? What should I do? I'm currently planning on: checking in with my P about the referral and consequences in the morning going over the school & classroom rules with the entire class having a private chat with the child, and "reteaching" that we keep our hands to ourselves trying to keep my affect neutral and warm. Thoughts??? Personally, if I were the parent of one of these children, I would be having a fit!
