Aspire Public Schools Discipline Policy
The Student Code of Conduct is intended as a set of guidelines to help us communicate about behavior and discipline more effectively. It was designed after extensive conversations with teachers, parents, students, and administrators. It is not designed to be a rulebook, but rather a set of guiding principles to help us ensure that students and teachers can learn in a safe and supportive environment where discipline is fair, equitable, and proportionate. The levels consists of the following:

  • Level 1: These behaviors are short-term acts that interfere with the orderly operations of the classroom, a school function, extracurricular/co-curricular program or approved transportation.
  • Level 2: These behaviors are moderate disruptive acts of misconduct that interfere with orderly operations in a classroom, a school function, extracurricular/co-curricular program or approved transportation or repeated acts from level 1.
  • Level 3: These behaviors are moderate to severe disruptive acts of misconduct that interfere with the orderly operations of the classroom, a school function, extracurricular/co-curricular program or approved transportation or repeated acts from level 2.
  • Level 4: These behavior are major acts of misconduct that interfere with the orderly operations of the classroom, a school function, extracurricular/co-curricular program or approved transportation or repeated acts from level 3.
  • Level 5: These behaviors are serious acts of misconduct. Any level 5 behaviors are grounds for a mandatory expulsion as mandated by Tennessee Code Annotated § 49-6-3401.

Principal’s Message

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! Our commitment at Aspire East Academy is to provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become problem solvers and inspired learners prepared to thrive in the world in which we live. High standards and expectations for each student is the core our school.

Below are our beliefs regarding teaching and learning at Aspire East Academy.

We believe that effective teachers:

  • Create opportunities for students to become facilitators of learning, collaborators, problem-solvers, and application of classroom learning to real life situations;
  • Implement strategies that promote students carrying the cognitive load;
  • Collaborate with colleagues to share and discuss exemplary practices, interpret student performance data, and utilize assessments to adjust instruction to meet the varying needs of each student

We believe that successful students:

  • Employ critical and creative thinking skills to solve problems; and
  • Pose questions, examine possibilities, and apply skills to find solutions to authentic issues.
  • Make positive choices related to physical and mental wellness

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call. I look forward to working with you this school year.

Sincerely,

Toby Finley
Principal, Aspire East Academy
