Ok, so without giving too many details... We have a student who consistently hits and kicks other students, drops the f-bomb all the time, has thrown things at me, and has threatened multiple times to kill students and their families. We are in the beginning stages of implementing PBIS in the schools. (Positive behavior, not immediately sending them to the principal, etc.) For some behaviors, I can understand this. For some students, this would be enough. However, for the exceptions, such as this child, they don't care if they go to a Respect/Responsibility class. This child couldn't even care less if they go to the principal. I understand that we are trying to get the procedures and things in place and that we need to follow them, but shouldn't there be an exception? I would think that the threatening to kill students (though probably not a likelihood due to the age) and the continual language and assault of students/teachers would be enough to have an administrator step in and take charge. I just feel, based on this school and based on another school I was at, that basically it's a "tough it out and pass the problem onto someone else" kind of system. I feel that it's always the teacher's problem and never a team effort to a) deal with the situation and/or b) get the student the help/medication they need. How do other schools deal with these situations? It's making me miss private schools.
