    One of my students got escorted out the classroom by school security because he used profanity and displayed a bad temper. He also got a referral that day and I called his parent. So that day he didn't get to finish his work and failed to submit his assignment. Should he be obliged to make it up?

    In my classroom, I expect the work to be made up unless it was review. Explain that the goal is to learn certain material, and it needs to be done regardless of attendance.

    I would expect him to make up the work. He was escorted out of class due to his own inappropriate behavior, not due to circumstances out of his control. If he doesn't have to make up work, he might see that as an incentive for engaging in disruptive behavior again in the future.

    Letting him off the work for his assignment is a reward for his poor behavior. He made a series of choices, and the makeup should be part of the consequences.

    I would stick to whatever your policy is. Your rules and policies have been in place, and I don't think it is necessary to bend them in this situation.

    My policy would be that I would require him to make up the work. Giving him an "F" for work that he couldn't complete at school, might be a bit harsh...although I do understand if you choose this route.

    You will probably need to defend your decision to administration. I'm not sure that you're going to be successful. I think you should let the student attempt the make-up.

    Yes, I totally agree! You (and the students) are so lucky to have that type of support backing you up and protecting the educational environment! :thumb:

    I have let them know what they missed, but they never do it.

    The only time someone gets escorted out of a room in our school is for a fight and that usually results in a 3-day suspension and a written request for three days of classwork either from the assistant principal or a counselor. They don't do that either and just take the zeroes.

    :dunno:

    When I student taught, my omnipresent CT helped me to get the offending child out of the room. When I subbed, I wrote up the student while calmly letting him / her know that I wasn't shocked but disappointed. Now, I almost never have that problem because I control student interactions.

    You said you gave the student a failing grade for the assessment. Are you going to let him make it up? I'd do so because he still needs to be responsible for the material, even at a reduced grade for lateness.

    I would allow the student to make up the work. Actually I would emphasize that he must do it, because he was supposed to be in the classroom; the fact the he was removed was for something he caused.

    At our schools if we 'kick out' a student we're supposed to send work with them. Our P is very big on that, but almost no one ever does it - I guess old habits die hard.
    I agree with this strategy though, because the student is supposed to be learning - he is removed from the classroom because he was disrupting others, but it doesn't mean he now doesn't have to learn the material.

    If you provided the student an opportunity to make up the work, and he or she did not choose to take it, then the results of that choice are that he gets an F on that assignment. Let him complain all he wants. Take a few breaths, wait it out, and reinforce the concept that it is his choice to have taken an F for that assignment.

    The admin will definitely back you up in this decision.

    The student has already had the opportunity to do this work - the exact same opportunity the other students had - and he chose of his own free will to blow it. Let the consequences of his chosen action fall on his head.
