Parents dont care
I have a student that will get his letter moved down for being disruptive and he will say I don't care my parents still let me do whatever I want. I have contacted the parents with no response. I spend most of the class redirecting him. What should I do?

Have you considered using incentive rather than negative reinforcement or punishment? Perhaps he doesn't respond with desired behavior in response to threatening his grade because he nor his parents care about his grade. Maybe introduce something that he does like or care about, to encourage the proper behavior. This is something I tested in an ABA case study.

Wonderful solution. Students tend to behave better when there is a positive outcome. This tool would be great to use in a class room to try and redirect behavior positively.

Ensuring to abide by the classroom rules and consequences that were determined on the first day of school is essential in this particular situation. It is important that if a student, especially this one, breaks one of the classroom rules, they receive the appropriate consequence that is attached to this rule. If this still does not seem to work, you could always put this particular student on their individual behavior management plan. If this student gets so many check marks during the day and/or week, they could be given some type of reward, that is discussed with the student and something that truly interests this student, at the end of the week. If this still does not work, you could then have a meeting with administration and ask them to sit in with you while you conduct a parent-teacher conference with the student's parent to discuss their child's behavior.

I would create a plan in my own classroom where he will receive some sort of punishment example, 5 mins. out at recess, no free time, new assigned seat, etc.
