Teacher Provides an Overview of the Community Violation Process at Roots

Roots teacher, Lecksy Wolk, explains the process for addressing behaviors that undermine culture.


Transcript: Lecksy Wolk: all adults in the building are able to give out a CV. So it's a community violation – for short, CV. And on the front side, we – you know, there's a list of things that would warrant as a CV. So it comes as no surprise when one is circled – we send it home in the beginning of the year. This is what warrants as a CV, and then a description on the side, so I'll say child made such and such a choice which resulted in a CV. And then, they – so that goes somewhere else. So I put in the group meet that says this child has received a community violation from our community, so they sit in the back of classrooms, they don't get to participate in other activities. And then we have a place where a coach comes and gets them later. So, you may have noticed that coaches walk around pulling a scholar out of class with a red paper. They then have a conversation, and the goal is to have it as quickly as possible. Obviously, there's a million things happening in a school every day, but it happens within the school day.
