Discipline

GPA Teacher provides the ability to record disciplinary actions regarding your students. To get started, click on the Discipline icon from the Navigation Bar at the top of your window. You may also click on the Discipline link for one of your classes.
 
 
From the Discipline window, click on a student to record disciplinary action taken. To view a list of your students rather than the Seating Chart view, click on the Class Roster link from the sidebar menu on the right-hand side of your window. The same disciplinary options are available.
 

Recording Disciplinary Actions

There are two ways to record disciplinary actions. You may add a Discipline Record by clicking on the + Add a Record link on the left-hand side of the Student Discipline window. Or you may add a Discipline Box Message by clicking on the + Add a Message on the right-hand side of the window. Note that before you add a message, you'll first need to define one or more messages via the Messages Editor from the main Discipline window.
 
A Discipline Box Message is a simple in-classroom disciplinary action taken in regards to the given student. For example, if a student requires a "time-out" or some similar punishment, you may opt to use the Discipline Box Message.
 
A Discipline Record is a more serious disciplinary action taken in regards to the given student. Such actions include Detention, Office Referral, Suspension, and Warning.
 
 
For both types of disciplinary action, fill in the appropriate details, then click either the Add Record or Add Message button at the bottom of the Student Discipline window. Note that for a Discipline Record, you have the option of including a description in the Message area.
 
 
All disciplinary actions recorded in GPA Teacher are available for review.
