LAMS administration and staff strive to provide and maintain a safe, equitable, and positive environment that promotes intellectual and personal growth and development. Discipline interventions are geared to nurture the development of self control, self worth, social responsibility and the acceptance of consequences for ones actions. Our discipline plan utilizes conflict resolution strategies and adult intervention. The plan specifies rules covering the standards of behavior expected from our students. Students who violate the rules will receive natural and logical consequences. Students who follow the rules will reap positive consequences.
Our General School Rules are:
