I'm a HS math teacher, about to start my 3rd year teaching. I've tried 3 or 4 tardy policies already, and nothing works. Either the students don't respond to it, or it's too complicated to enforce. My school has no tardy policy other than to define being tardy as "when a student is not inside the classroom when the bell rings." So, basically, I'm on my own. I tried detentions after every 3rd tardy, but that was hard to track fairly. And many students just don't care... detentions don't mean anything to them. I've tried easy pop quizzes for students who are on time... that ran into issues. Students have an 8 min passing period, with a 2 min warning bell. 8 mins, in my mind, is MORE than enough to get across our campus. I've read about school-wide tardy policies on here before... but does anyone have good teacher created tardy policies that work on uncaring HS students?
