Behavior Policy

A caring and positive approach will be taken regarding discipline. Rose staff will reinforce appropriate behavior through positive reinforcement, direct statements, and redirection of activity.

If a student artist chooses to behave in any way that is dangerous to themselves or others, or does not demonstrate respect for their fellow artists, instructors, volunteers, staff members, or the theater facility, the staff will use the following steps to address the unacceptable behavior:

Step 1: – Verbal warning given to the student.

Step 2: – Written warning to parents sent home with the student.

Step 3: – Written warning and conference with parent/guardian. The parent/guardian will be required to sign the written warning and will be required to pick the student up from camp/class.

If the problem still persists, the student may be asked to leave the program due to their behaviors.
