Reply To: Disrespectful students…go or stay
To answer your question: Yes.
If they are a problem, get rid of them. Now. If your administration will allow it, park their butts in study hall for the rest of the year and remove them. (assuming their behavior is awful)
Kids here seem to take the hint, but I have asked maybe 2 kids in 5 years to not return to our program. This doesn’t include a senior who blew off district contest…we removed her from our group as well. It quickly turns your program into something you need kids to be a part of into a program that kids WANT to be a part of.
Hope that helps.
