Students Out of Area
I am in an internship in high school and I have been noticing my ESE students just getting up and leaving the room whenever they feel like it. There is also a back room that is off limits to students unless they are with an adult. Students still ignore the posted signs for this room and enter, my teacher has written one referral. Even after this students are still entering, what can be done?

Make sure that the teacher has established an effective classroom management system that consists of how the students are expected to behave. This should also include what the consequences are for students who do not follow this. Apply the consequences to the students who leave every time that they do so. Find out what they are interested in and tell them that it will be taken away if they chose to leave. This can be done through receiving a lower grade. Another strategy could also be to provide motivation and incentive for students who do not leave. This will allow students to be less motivated to get up and leave if they know there is a reward for staying.

Is the door able to be locked? If so, you could lock the door and then walk with the student to unlock it when they need to get back there. As for the students leaving the room, I would suggest getting a walkie-talkie to the teacher that would allow them to communicate with administration when a student leaves so that administration could come and take the student back to the classroom.

This solution is useful, and having the involvement of administration is a good idea. If this problem cannot be solved by the teacher alone, there is no shame in asking for help.

I would definitely talk with your CT to work together to create a discipline plan for students who are leaving the room. Expectations should be clearly communicated with students, and a consistent system of consequences should be established for those who continue to not follow the rules. In my internship, we have a student who is constantly roaming around the room. My CT recently set up a system in which she sets a timer that goes off every 10 minutes (the student does not know the amount of time set on the timer). If the student is in his seat at least 3 out of 4 times that the timer goes off within one period, he receives a reward at the end of the class. This has worked well in motivating him to stay in his seat.

This is an interesting strategy. Keeps the students on edge and should keep them in their seats.

Consistency is key. Make sure to put basic guidelines in place for what is accepted and what is not. For every student that disobeys should receive the punishment. Don't forget to praise the student modeling what you expect as good behavior. This will help the students constantly in trouble to see what you expect.

Talking to students respectfully can go a long way for some students, ask them where they are going, why do they feel the need to leave, and disrespect the school rules. I would reiterate the expectations, consequences, and positive reinforcement options. Additionally, warn them that actions may not have been taken before, but they will be now that you and your teacher realize the extent of their rule breaking. I encourage trying to resolve the problem with communication and then install a little bit of fear and if they follow the rules allow some reward that will allow them some sense of freedom after they have meet objectives or earned the free time.

Let the students know that there will be major consequences for walking out of class without permission. Also if the door to the other room has a lock on it, try keeping the door locked since students should not be in that room anyways.

This is part of school rules and there should be consequences for rules not being followed.

As the intern noticing a serious problem, talk with your teacher in how they feel and what you can do to help. This is a great time to put on your assertive pants and reinforce the class rules about special areas and the school procedures about students in the halls.

I would address the class as whole to let them know that anyone found entering the back room without permission or leaving the room without permission, will receive a referral. After a referral they do it again, they will be sent to detention.

There needs to be set classroom rules and procedures for this class. If students are not following them, the rules and procedures should be reviewed along with modeled by the teacher. These rules and procedures will need to be reviewed each day if needed until students are behaving accordingly. There also needs to be set consequences for when the classroom procedures are not followed. The students who do not follow these procedures need to receive consequences. It is also very important that the consequences are consistent.

The classroom seems to be lacking classroom rules and expectations. Rules and expectations, which are realistic and easy to follow, must be established and communicated to students. The teacher will also want to communicate consequences to the student. One will also want to refer to the students' IEP's and 504 plans in order to address the situations properly. Reward systems or behavior charts would also be a solution, as these are tangible and will reinforce appropriate behavior.

Make sure the teacher has set rules and consequences for each rule and go over this with the students. If the situation persists there will need to harsher consequences in place like suspension.
