Betzelem Elohim: From Mission Statement to Disciplinary Policy

9.10 Betzelem Elohim: From Mission Statement to Disciplinary Policy

Written by cheri

In the September issue of RAVSAK’s HaYidion, Mark Shpall, NCJHS Dean of Students, argues that a school’s discipline policy provides a platform for putting its mission statement into practice, thus connecting both student and administrator to the school’s values.

“We have a deep-seated commitment to the idea that when a student makes a mistake that requires disciplinary action, it is a moment to teach and educate, not a moment to simply punish and penalize.”
