Student Handbook - Discipline Policy

This is not a corrective institution. Consequently, we ask that parents do not enroll children with the idea that we will reform them. We are here to work with the home, but not to take the place of parents who have experienced difficulty in fulfilling their roles.

All new students are admitted with the understanding that they are on probation for the first six weeks.

Students must at all times conduct themselves in a Christian manner. Griping is not tolerated! Parents are cautioned to take the following steps if their child does come home complaining about a policy or discipline.

1. Give the staff the benefit of the doubt.

2. Realize that we have reasons for all rules, and that they are enforced without favor.

3. Realize that the student’s reporting is emotionally biased without all the information.

4. Support the administration, and call us for all the facts.


This school is dedicated to the training of children in a program of study, activity, and living that is Christ-centered. We believe that "all things should be done decently and in order", and that our students should be taught to accept a given responsibility to "walk honorably before all men". A discipline is maintained here which is firm, consistent. In the classroom, this is shown through kindness, love, and genuine regard for the students. However, when disciplinary action becomes necessary, it is firmly carried out, tempered by good judgment and understanding.


The following are classroom rules that apply to all CCCS Classrooms.

1. Be loving.

“You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind … and your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:37–39 NKJV).

2. Be obedient.

Obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account (Hebrews 13:17 NKJV).

3. Be patient.

The patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit (Ecclesiastes 7:8b NKJV).

4. Be diligent.

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15 NKJV).

5. Be self-controlled.

He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, And he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city (Proverbs 16:32 NKJV).


For Calvary Chapel Christian School to be able to meet its goal of providing a Christ centered high quality education to its students, it is necessary to ensure a well mannered, disciplined environment for the children. To ensure this, parents are required to sign a permission form allowing the school to take disciplinary action when deemed necessary. Students will be encouraged to regulate their own behavior (self-discipline). However, if misconduct is observed, the teacher will be the first stage of discipline, then the principal.

The first time the student is sent to the principal a warning is given and a note is sent home informing the parents.

If the student is sent to the principal for repeating the action, the rod of correction will be administered. The parents will again receive a note informing them of the action taken.



The school reserves the right to dismiss or deny re-admission to students for reasons the administration deems fit. They may come under the following categories:

1. Attitude compatibility: (Uncooperative spirit, Rebellion toward discipline, Chronic complaining, Sowing discord)

2. Chronic unexcused absences or tardiness

3. Non-conformity to standards of conduct and grooming; the use of harmful drugs or narcotics; immoral conduct

4. Lack of parental cooperation

5. Poor academic achievement
