Problem Student
I have a student who is constantly disruptive during instructional time. I've conferenced with the student, removed him from the class, wrote the student up, started a behavior plan and called home. Unfortunately, I cannot get in contact with the parent to receive support on this matter. How should I go about handling this disruptive behavior.

Being that you could not get in contact with a parent to help decrease this student behavior, I would request for a home visit. I would also request for the student to be suspended until a parent conference. In my school, if we are unable to contact a parent, the student will be suspended up to 10 days until a parent conference. Most times, the parent comes the next day.

I have requested a home visit but haven't received the paper or a call back. I will speak to administration to see what else we can do. Thank you for your feedback.

The consequence stands whether the parent can be involved or not.

It sounds like you have done everything to follow the proper protocol. Since you mentioned that you have not been able to contact parent for support in the matter, it makes me wonder if the student is not receiving support at home as well. Could it be possible that the student is constantly misbehaving because he or she is seeking attention? Rather than punish the student maybe you could try reverse psychology and offer him or her support and incentives. Have you offered counselor support? That might be an option as well. Good luck!

I agree, I would try reverse psychology too. It can get far enough where hopefully you can break the bad habit. If not I would talk to administration and see if they have a professional come in and observe the behavior. Also, I would investigate why parents are not in contact with me either.

Investigate why the parent is not involved and possible get DEFACS involved. Every guardian has a responsibility to help address the issues at school. Make sure to involve the school counselor and an administrator. Also, you make want to try to have the student journal about how they are feeling when they get angry and make sure to praise when they are making good choices.

IN this situation I would Just keep doing everything your are doing. Keep trying to get in contact with the parent until you are successful. Also keep working on a behavior management plan for the student. If what you are doing now does not work, change it. Keep trying and changing things until you find something that can work. I know it is frustrating because I have been in a similar situation, but once you find a system that works for you and the student, your life will be so much easier.
