School-wide Discipline Plan
á
Each student will receive a School District of Aiken County Code of Student Conduct booklet.á The parent/guardian and the student will sign the appropriate forms.á Please make sure you read the code and familiarize yourself with the disciplinary expectations of the district.á Greendale students take pride in their school and the well-disciplined atmosphere that exists.á Eventual self-discipline and intrinsic motivation are the primary goal.á Other controls and guidance will be used while achieving these goals.
á
The discipline policies of the School District of Aiken County will be the governing guidelines at Greendale Elementary School.
á
Parents may appeal suspensions by calling Laurie Reese, Academic Officer, at 641-2447.á When a child is suspended the parent must return to school with the child on the day they re-enter for a conference with either the Principal or Assistant Principal.
á
Corporal Punishment will not be used at Greendale Elementary.

Discipline Philosophy
á
Each and every Greendale child has the potential to grow academically, socially, physically, and emotionally.á Your child, and all other children, will have an excellent educational environment here at Greendale.
á
Student misconduct gets in the way of learning, of safety, and of developing respect.á Misbehavior takes up valuable learning time, and takes away learning opportunities.á Furthermore, when children are not held accountable for their rule breaking, they often end up learning that the "rules were made to be broken".

We have only meaningful rules which focus on respect for self, others, safety, and property.á These rules will be enforced!á These beliefs are consistent with the code of conduct developed for all students in Aiken County.á Please review the code of conduct and the school-wide discipline plan. When parents are aware of and understand this philosophy, it is more productive in teaching a child to be self-disciplined.á Close communication is an important element in solving problems as they arise.
