Cleaning Up Tardies
Cleaning up tardies is intended to lower our tardy rate by having all students in each class without being late. We have made it a priority to reach zero percent student tardies during the school day, so that each student is in his or her seat ready to learn upon the beginning of the lesson in the classroom. Every class is equally as important, and when students are tardy, they miss valuable information and material that sets the stage for success with the lesson. We have noticed that students who are tardy have a difficult time acclimating to the classroom environment when they arrive late, the interruption for students who are in the class interferes with instructional time. Often, students repeat this behavior and it becomes a habit, despite our supervisor' assistance in encouraging students to move swiftly to the next period. A tardy sweep may occasionally be conducted in an effort to encourage habitually tardy students to arrive on time to each class, in an effort to change this behavior. The tardy sweeps would run as such: on random dates the office would inform all students and teachers that a tardy sweep will be conducted. Should conditions warrant, sweeps will be called between classes without prior warning. In this case, teachers would be instructed over the PA to close and lock classroom doors after the sounding of the tardy bell, and continue with their instruction. Campus supervisors and security in each area of the campus would gather students who were not in their designated classrooms on time. These students would then be issued detention or Saturday School as an intervention toward eliminating future tardies. Parents of students who were not in class during the tardy sweep are contacted to inform them of the action and intervention. Students are responsible to make up missed class work when they are tardy and when they are absent from school. We thank you for your support in stressing the important of good habits, including being present and on time for every class. Please contact the Dean of Student Discipline, Safety, and Attendance, Mr. Morones, at ext. 3548 if you would like additional information.
