Other Procedures

1.  Student use of teacher's desk or storage areas:  Generally these are kept off-limits to students except when the teacher gives special permission.

2.  Fire and disaster drills:  Students should be informed early in the year about what they are to do during emergencies.  Typically, the school will have a master plan and will conduct school-wide drills.
3.  Procedures for ending class:  Expectations regarding straightening up the rooms, returning seats, noise levels, and a signal for dismissal may be established.  When cleanup requires more than a few seconds, teachers usually set aside the necessary time at the end of the period to complete the task before the bell rings.

4.  Interruptions:  Students need to know what is expected during interruptions.
