I was proctoring the state standardized test today. A student in the class that I proctored began loudly kicking her desk, then yelled out, "I'm going to throw a pencil in your eye" to the girl in front of her. I was standing about 5 feet away from both girls, and saw and heard nothing that might have caused this outburst. I had this student in my class last year, and knew that at this point there would be no talking her down. I picked up the phone, called the office, and described what had just happened. I was told that I would receive a call back. No one called back. Twenty minutes of calm went by, and I thought we might be okay. Then another outburst occurred. I called again, and insisted that the girl be removed. Someone came within minutes to remove her. It bothers me because after that first disruption, I was anxious that this girl was going to disrupt again. I bet other students were as well. I'm sure they were quite distracted by this, waiting for the other shoe to drop. I was wondering how your school would have handled this situation.
