Discipline for Inappropriate Behavior or Wrong Grading- Alternative to Expulsion or being banned from site
Alternative to Expulsion or being banned from the site that may make a bigger impact on misbehaving students: Give all Teachers, TA, Prefects, Head of House, The Management and Head Mistress power or option to individually punish the student who is behaving inappropriately or who has graded an assignment wrongly. This would be classified as a detention and would go on a students permanent site record.
Students can be punished by having a locked site for a certain amount of time via timer (like 30 minutes or something) - similar to the fainting in the hospital ward, you can loose house and individual points of large quantity- up to the discretion of the one doing the punishing (like ranging from 5-200 points per incident based on severity), they can lock up your account-allowing for you to view and access the owl and certain punishment areas, until you fulfill various tasks (e.g. reply to an owl, create an action plan for correcting your behavior, writing you will not do something 100 times and sending it in, a long word counted essay about something (e.g. write a 500 word essay on how to treat others respectfully), grade homework- but don't receive incentive points - only loose house points or receive more homework to grade before you can play again, make you do service work for a club or something for a certain amount of time or tasks (e.g. 20 hours of service, or 20 tasks for x club), or what ever else you can think of to punish students without expelling or banning them from the site for inappropriate behavior.
Regardless of the punishment, the punisher should have to owl who ever they are giving the punishment to and tell them why or have an established form that will get sent to the student but also put on the student's permanent record in the site. The student will receive the right to dispute, however if in fault and trying to get out of it, student will be punished further. I definitely feel that students will actually take it seriously like back in grade school if we were to do this approach.
An example form may include the following information:
Name of the Student
Date/Time/Location of Incident
Reporter/ Punisher For Incident
What is the student being accused of?
If re-occurring incident- previous linked incident (more offenses= harsher punishment)
Did the student receive warnings of their behavior? Is it repetitive? If so, how many?
What punishment is being assigned and why?
