-- Behavior

Uinta County School District #1 is striving to provide an educational environment of the highest quality, an environment that is safe and orderly, and one in which all students can learn and grow. To accomplish this we must maintain proper discipline. Our plan is to reward positive behavior and to modify negative behavior. An essential element of this plan is that behavioral expectations are established and clearly understood by all students. The focus of student discipline is to have students accept the responsibility and the consequences of their actions.



Classroom Rules: The following are general policies for appropriate behavior in the classroom and throughout the school. Each school will modify these policies to meet their needs.



  • Students will follow the teacher’s directions immediately.
  • Students will show respect for others and their possessions.



  • Students will make-up lost time due to inappropriate classroom behavior.



  • Any activity that may harm self or others will not be allowed at school.
  • Students that break the law will deal with the law.


Violation of Classroom Rules: Methods of discipline will vary slightly with individual teachers. Generally teachers will follow these guidelines:

  • Establish behavioral expectations (modeling, warnings).
  • First Offense: Informal Student/Teacher Conference (Inappropriate behavior discussed and future consequences identified if behavior continues).
  • Second Offense: Parent Contact (Inappropriate behavior discussed with student and parent, future consequences identified if behavior continues).
  • Third Offense: Administrative Intervention – office referral.
  • Severe Clause: Administrative Intervention – office referral.
    • When a student commits any Category II or III offense
