Most adolescents anxiously anticipate the new freedom they will enjoy when they become licensed drivers. As we all know, however, driving is a privilege, not a right. Privileges can be revoked. This is a lesson better learned in the safety of the classroom, rather than on the roadways of life later on. In order to promote an awareness that all behaviors (good and bad) result in consequences, our Behavior Expectations are modeled after the rules of the road. Here is a summary of what we will follow in class:
The Rules of the Road
On the Highway to Success
1. Be READY to learn:
Come to class with your materials and a good attitude every day.
STOP at the door and make sure you are READY!
2. Be RESPECTFUL to others:
Treat others with care and concern through your words and actions.
YIELD to others and make sure you are RESPECTFUL!
3. Be RESPONSIBLE to yourself:
Complete your assignments on time and to the best of your ability.
LIMIT distractions that make you less RESPONSIBLE!
4. Be RESPONSIVE to changes:
Ask for help if you encounter difficulty and need help.
CAUTION me of struggles so you can be RESPONSIVE!
Breaking the Rules of the Road will result in a “traffic ticket.” (student notification)
Three (3) tickets will result in a trip to “traffic court.” (student conference)
Additional tickets will result in loss of privileges. (parent notification)
