could be notified and Plans of Provisions
FAQ Notes The Details box should never be left blank, and NO
students should be identified. A students initials cannot be used
to identify other students. The difference between a fight and an
assault Fight both kids fight. Misdemeanor assault - - one person
is trying to do bodily harm to another. One kid doesnt want to
fight felony Sent to the state If you arent sure put fight. Admin
cant change what you write but they can uncheck the box for
restraint, and the type of crime. Make sure you know school code of
conduct. Staff members are to be included and identified as a
participant. Any staff member is responsible for completing and
submitting a Behavioral Referral. This does NOT replace the MPS
Report of Student Accident/Injury form The method of communication
from school administration after a Behavior Referral has been
submitted will be determined by the Principal in each building. The
staff member will know that an administrator has received the
Behavior Referral and rendered a resolution by receiving a message
in their I.C. mailbox.
