ATI Academy Policies 


Guidance

Our goal is to establish and maintain a behavior management system which will reinforce the following positive behaviors:

  • Respect Others

  • Respect Property

  • Stay with your Group

  • Leave Personal Belongings at Home


If my child’s behavior seriously violates the safety of any child or staff, I understand that he/she may be temporarily excluded from the program. In these circumstances, I agree that a parent or authorized adult will pick up my child within 30 minutes of notification.


Discipline
1. Should inappropriate behavior occur, the concern will be discussed with the students, and a written warning will be given.
2. Should inappropriate behavior continue, a second warning will be given, and the parents will be notified.
3. Should inappropriate behavior continue, a third warning will be given, and the student will be suspended for 2 tutoring sessions.
4. Continued behavior problems may result in permanent dismissal.

Parents may set up a meeting with the program coordinator to discuss individual needs and concerns. We use a consistent, positive approach including redirection, diversion, and separation, always promoting self-discipline. Parents will be notified if there is a consistent behavior problem.



Absences and Late Arrivals
Parents must notify staff if their child is late or absent. This is for the safety of the child. If the child is registered to come and does not appear, we will call the parent and/or emergency contact numbers to locate the child.




Child Pick-Up and Drop-Off


Parents of children must sign in upon arrival at the program and parents must notify a staff member when a child is leaving. Parents are required to come in, and pick-up their child and sign the child out.

Parents will give the program the names of all persons authorized to pick up their children by submitting and completing the “ATI Academy Parental Release/Pickup Authorization Form.” Staff will ask for picture ID of anyone they do not know. Persons not listed as authorized to pick up will not be allowed to check out a child. 


Illness

It is in the best interest of your child and the other children if you keep your child at home when he or she is ill. Children with fever, diarrhea, or vomiting will not be admitted to the program. If a child becomes ill, while at the program, the parent will be called immediately to pick up the child. Parents will be notified regarding contagious illnesses. Children will be readmitted when they are no longer contagious.



Medication

ATI Academy staff will not dispense any medication to any child.
