If a student inflicts physical violence to a teacher what is expected to be done? I have an issue simply following mtss procedure. I am honestly not comfortable being alone in my classroom with this student because they started telling lies to staff members about my integrity. Saying I was doing things or saying things I did not do or say. Plus I am being harmed physically (along with other students). Not only am I tired of being hurt, I am worried for my career. They won’t provide any assistance unless a dx is made which is an issue in and of itself. I need them to do the eval not wait for the family. It will be the end of the year and time is of the essence. How do I word this to admin that this student is now allowed in class if they are harming me or others or using inappropriate language? They are putting it back on us that they can’t hire more staff or do this or that for the school if we keep relying on them to handle behavioral issues. We should rely on our team. My team doesn’t have the time nor ability to assist with this student as they’re teaching their own classes. I wasted 45 minutes today chasing this student down the hallway, holding them, talking to them, and trying to get them reset so that I could teach. Within 5 minutes, another student “looked at them” and they ran back out again. Nobody ever comes when I can for assistance. I want a safety plan. I want to feel safe. My needs aren’t being met.
