Math Department Mission Statement
The mission of the Mathematics Department of Destrehan High School is to provide consistent, quality, academic instruction that empowers students to develop an intuitive understanding of mathematical concepts and to apply these skills in real-world situations.
At Destrehan High School we take a Restorative Approach to discipline. Our primary focus, in conjunction with teaching and learning, is to build positive and working relationships. My discipline management plan will be consistent with the following restorative action steps:
1. Remind--students will be reminded of rule(s) or directions
2. Redirect--students will be specifically redirected to the task at hand
3. Relocate--students will be relocated to either reflect on (mis)behavior, calm down, or removed from a potentially disruptive situation (if necessary)
4. Reflect--students will be guided to reflect upon what happened, what could have prevented the situation, and how to make amends to the appropriate parties (If necessary)
Further or more severe consequences may be assigned if disruptive behavior continues or for more serious incidents/offenses
