Student Behavior & Discipline
Student Services aims to provide each student the skills and opportunities to improve their behavior in school. Through educational classes, individual case management and alternative programs, the goal is to reduce the amount of time out of the classroom while still holding the student accountable for his/her choices and behavior.
Students, staff, parents and community members in Westminster Public Schools have created a standard of practice as it relates to teaching and managing behavior called the Discipline Matrix. The information found in the matrix is intended to be a guide for staff members to teach and correct behavior. Lesser management strategies may be utilized as appropriate. Repeated acts of misconduct, more serious misconduct and/or extenuating circumstances may warrant a higher-level response. If you have specific questions regarding the matrix feel free to contact the Student Services at 720-542-5097.
