Behavior Policy

To help ensure each Drama at The Rose class is a safe and positive experience, we expect students to follow all rules and staff instructions. 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. Our goal is to help ALL students successfully participate in our programs with fellow students.  We understand, of course that all youth sometimes display inappropriate behaviors, however there are some behaviors we cannot safely supervise and/or accommodate. If a student artist chooses to behave in any way that is dangerous to themselves and/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. Depending on the severity of the individual’s behavior we reserve the right to request a parent/guardian to pick up the individual immediately and before the end of the program. Individuals who cause physical harm and/or threaten harm to themselves or others will be sent home and may be denied program participation due to their behaviors. Admission to future Rose programs will require approval by the Education Director. Please note: these steps are guidelines and Rose staff members have the right to adjust consequences on an individual basis as the situation warrants. We want all of our students to enjoy their experiences at The Rose, and to be physically, emotionally, and mentally safe when in our programs. Students who interfere with the mental, emotional, and physical safety of others might not find this program a good fit, and may be asked to leave. If your student is removed from the program due to behavior, a refund will not be issued. Rose staff respect students and do not participate in any forms of physical or corporal punishment.

Inclusivity

The Rose is proud to cultivate an intentionally-welcoming and inclusive space for peoples of all abilities, ethnicities, socioeconomic statuses, sexual orientations and gender identities. Our mission includes the distribution of need-based scholarships, the availability of all-gender restrooms, classroom introductions with personal gender pronouns, and sensory-friendly performance modifications. Our staff is happy to meet your family’s and students’ physical, learning, and social needs.
