Hall Passes by Students
In our school, our administration wants every child to have a hall pass when he or she leaves a classroom. I find that I could spend my entire period writing passes, so I have the kids do it themselves. Here’s how: I have a clip board with a piece of paper that has columns labeled name, destination, time out and time back. When kids ask me, I give them permission at a good transition point, and they fill everything out and take the pass to their destination. They’re very good about completing the form because they know I check it.
