Troop 4 Discipline Policy

Level 1

"On the spot". A scout is talked to immediately about inappropriate behavior. Usually, this is done by an adult leader or patrol leader.

Level 2

After several attempts to correct a scout's behavior unsuccessfully, the scout, Senior Patrol Leader and two adults will have a conference. A written notation goes into the scout's file.

Level 3

The same as Level 2, with the addition that the scout's parents are notified or brought into the meeting. Scouts receiving a Level 3 discipline are not exhibiting Scout Spirit. A written notation goes into the scout's file and the Troop Committee is notified.

At this level, a scout will no longer be eligible for advancement or a leadership position (length of ineligibility determined by severity of actions). Positions in the troop could be revoked.

Level 4

Same as Level 3. The behavior has continued. The scout's parents are brought into the conference with the SPL and adult leaders. A written notation goes into the scout's file and the Troop Committee is notified.

Parents might be asked to start attending troop meetings and functions as a chaperone to their scout. Parents could be asked to take their scout home (from meeting or function). Scout is no longer eligible for advancement or leadership position (length of ineligibility determined by severity of actions). Positions in troop could be revoked.

Level 5

Suspension. The scout is suspended from troop activities. Length of the suspension is determined by the severity of actions. A written notation is placed in the scout's file. The Troop Committee is notified of the suspension. Suspensions of longer than 2 meetings require Troop Committee approval.

The scout immediately looses any positions held.

Level 6

Expulsion. The scout has not corrected their behavior and is asked to leave the troop. Expulsions require the approval of the Troop Committee.
