Lincoln Elementary Disciplinary Point System

"The Teacher of a child attending a public school shall have the same rights as a parent to control and discipline such a child during the time the child is in attendance or in transition to the school or classroom presided over by the teacher." (Article VI, Section 114, School Laws of Oklahoma.)

The discipline scale will guide disciplinary action. All final disciplinary action will be decided upon by the administration according to board policy. Administrator's discretion will be used according to the age and development of the student as well as consideration of IEP’s. Points on the discipline scale will accumulate from start to finish of the current school year. Students can reduce or eliminate consequence points according to the following schedule (minor office referrals fall under Levels 1-4, major office referrals fall under Levels 5-10): Habit One: Be Proactive.
