    Would have given them a separate detention.

    the pupil i had in detention was begging me to let him go and refused to do the work i set him.
    what would you have done in that situation?

    Suspend the student. Call his parents.

    If he failed to show for the original detention, I would have issued a second detention. If he failed to show for that one, I would have referred him to the deans' office so that they could take further disciplinary action.

    If he arrived at detention and was obnoxious, I would have ignored him. If he refused to do the work I assigned him, I would have referred him to the deans' office for insubordination and failure to comply with a teacher directive.

    Skipping detention or misbehaving while in it is grounds for immediate referral to the administration. At our school, this results in Saturday school, ISS, or OSS.

    I agree with Cassie. If he failed to do the work and was not cooperating, he deserves another detention and then referred to the AP's office.

    What was the original reason for the detention?

    Is/was the detention a successful way to help this student change his behavior?

    If they try to do it again, they will come in and help in the classroom on their time.

    I wouldn't have waited for him at all. Art my school if you don't go to after school for an hour, you get a Saturday school, which lasts 4 hours. They would rather go to after school.
    I don't think I would have done anything to his friends. He has to suffer the consequences if he chooses to sneak out, not them.
    If he goes to after school and chooses to act up, I would probably give him two more, but we have an after school detention aide so I wouldn't have to serve with him.

    youngie65, please confirm for me: it's the case that his friends tried to smuggle him out?

    If that's the case, then seems to me they too should have consequences - detention sounds about right.
