Behavior Management and Discipline Policy

When a child is having a difficult time following directions or treating others or equipment with disrespect, developmentally appropriate guidance techniques are used. These techniques are as follows:

  • Positive Reinforcement: The child will be encouraged, praised, or rewarded when he/she is demonstrating acceptable or beyond acceptable behavior.
  • Redirection: The child is redirected to another activity and is given an opportunity to try again at another time.
  • "When... Then" Statements: A statement in which the child is encouraged to accomplish something before going on to something else. Sample: "When you finish picking up the blocks, then you may go outside."
  • "If... Then" Statements: A statement in which the child is encouraged to make a positive choice. Sample: "If you pick up the blocks, then you can go to the computer area."
  • Taking a Break or A Time to Myself: The child is separated from the group for a child regulated period of time. This technique is used when a child is exhibiting temper tantrum type behavior or hurting self, others or equipment. When the child shows that he/she is ready to demonstrate acceptable behavior, they are then encouraged to join the rest of the group and try again. This is after the child understands what the unacceptable behavior was, that should not be repeated again.
  • At IXL we strongly believe in setting up behavior guidelines for each classroom which are well known by the children. This lets the child know what is expected of them while at IXL, and what the consequences are when those expectations are not met. Teachers are very consistent with these consequences when the guidelines are pushed or not met, encouraging a child's good choices.

Admission and Enrollment

Closing Policies

IXL will only close on major holidays, as well as the Friday before Labor Day for staff training.

We offer care for school-age children when public schools are closed for breaks, snow days, in-services, etc..

In the event of severe weather conditions, we will use Howell School District as a indicator for what IXL will do. This includes, but is not limited to late openings and early dismissals. We will leave a message on our voice mail provided the phone lines are in working order, as well as post updates on the IXL Facebook page. We will always do our best to maintain a regular opening time on these days.
