Sexual comments.
So I have a teen male that's repetatively made sexual comments that were comedy driven towards a lot of the young females. I've already seen the teacher talk to him about it but it continued. The teacher has already contacted the parents but no improvement. What would be the best course of action?

The next course would be to have the student sit down with the parents, an administrator, and the teachers who have see the misconduct. This student needs to understand it is inappropriate to make these comments and gestures.

I agree, though if parents have already been notified with no change then it may be a challenge to get them to the conference/to listen to the problem and recognize the need for a solution.

The student should sit down with his parents, teacher, principal and counselor. They will talk about what is going on and how to stop it, and see if there is a reason why. Consequences will be handled as in possible suspension in my opinion. The student was given a warning but did not stop, and that is not okay.

If the parents have already been notified and there has been a conference, I think the next best step would be to contact the principal and/or other administration about this problem. This is DEFINITELY not something to be overlooked! Do your best to keep redirecting his behavior, and always reprimand the action and let him know it is NOT okay to objectify and sexually harass the other girls in class like that. If the problem persists, perhaps removing him from that classroom would be appropriate.

I would have the teacher arrange a parent-teacher conference with the student so that they can talk about the issue in person. I would also notify administration about the meeting and ask them if someone could join in on the meeting and go over school policy with the parents and student and what would happen if this behavior persists.

The teacher should teach and model appropriate behavior. The teacher should start by holding a class discussion about offensive conversations and inappropriate words that should never be used in and out of the school. The teach should then have the students create skits about comments that are hurtful and derogatory. Using the skits and language use by the students, the teacher should then model for the class the acceptable language and behavior. A short daily practice by the students should help the class stay on task. The student should be given a behavior sheet contract that makes him accountable for his behavior. His behavior contract should match the teacher's account of his behavior for the day. His parents, the school counselor, and principal should be kept updated about the student's behavior, as PBIS is a school wide initiative, and his parents can be an active part of the solution.

This student needs to have more serious consequences. I would have the females go to the principles office and they need to explain to the principle and let him or her know that nothing is being done and even the students parents are aware of this situation. From there the principle can assume the correct course and action for this student.

I don't think that this solution would do much to deter the behavior. The child will simply go back to the undesired behavior once he gets back if no other action is taken.

I think having the conference with the student, parents and administration is the most appropriate to decide what the next step should be. It is also important that we do not forget about the girls in this situation, their parents need to also be notified and the girls should also be encouraged to talk to admin or the teacher. They need to know that the staff is taking action even though it is 'only' comments or comedy the girls need to see it is serious and taken seriously by the adults around them. This will not only make them feel safe but also add another element in showing the student and the others in class how serious the issue is and will be taken.

In this case, since the teacher has already reached out to the parents and received little to no support, I would involve the administration to devise a plan that gets the students attention and makes him aware that inappropriate comments even in a joking manner are not allowed on school property and can a punishable by law offense if they continue. With the administration I would notify the school police officer and hold a conference with the student administration parents and the law enforcement officer to notify the student that there are serious legal consequences if he continues the inappropriate sexual comments towards the female student. Hopefully the fear will entice him to stop the behavior.

The best course of action is to read the schools policy about sexual harassment. Then, I would have the student and parent sign a document, clearing the school of any violations if this happens again. This will be followed by a detention and suspension of the student if this happens again.

Have him talk to the guidance counselor about his actions. Use the reality check/scare tactic of telling him that he is sexually harassing students now, how that is illegal, and how he can face time for these comments.

I would send him out of the classroom every time this happens. If it continues, I would send him to the guidance councilor. Until he stops, seat him away from students and close to you. If that doesn't help, seat him outside of the classroom.

The teacher should remind the student of the school policy regarding sexual harassment and explain the consequences. If the behavior is not corrected, I would set up a phone call or face-to-face meeting with the parents. Last resort would be to get administration involved.

The next step that should be taken would be getting administration involved and having them speak to the student. The behavior should not continue when administration speaks of consequence, but if it does a conference should be scheduled for all three parties to speak out on the topic and eliminate the sexual comments from occurring.

Administration involvement!!!! This is something that the girls might want to discuss with their own parents in hopes that their parents will reach out to the school with the concerns. This behavior is not acceptable and this student should not be allowed to make girls feel uncomfortable on a daily basis.

This is most likely something the student is being exposed to at home be it through the internet, social media, tv, or friends the student hangs out with. I would advise the student that being respectful of others is important and that is he has an interest in comedy he can pursue that without being disrespectful. I would build trust and community with that student. The better you get to know them the better you can help steer them in a different direction. It may take some time but it will be worth it at the end.

A solution would be to talk to the student and address why this is inappropriate along with unacceptable. remind the student of the classroom rules and procedures. This should be a rule in the classroom of respecting fellow students. If there is not any rule set up addressing this issue, a rule and consequences needs to be made. The student then needs to be held accountable to their actions. If the student continues to do this, consequences needs to be given. The teacher needs to be consistent with the consequences.
