Attached is a copy of the 3 Step Discipline Policy in PDF format.


First Step – The Patrol Leader, the Senior Patrol Leader, and the Scoutmaster will sit down with the Scout(s) (individually) and discuss the root cause or why/what is happening. They will come to a verbal agreement with a solution so this behavior does not continue. Step 1 will be documented by contacting the parent in person if available and in the form of an email to the parent(s) and Troop Committee Chairperson from the Scoutmaster. It will inform them of the incident, the defined root cause and the solution agreed upon by the Scout, Scout Leadership and Adult Leadership.


Second Step – The Patrol Leader, Senior Patrol Leader, and the Scoutmaster will sit down with the Scout(s) (individually) and discuss the root cause, why/what is happening. They will also discuss why the Step 1 solution did not prevent a repeat incident. They will determine if any training or support can be provided by the Troop so that this incident is not repeated. They will come to an agreement so this behavior does not continue. Step 2 will be documented in the form of a letter provided to the Scout and his parent(s) and the Troop Committee Chairperson from the Scoutmaster. The letter will include the incident's situation, the defined root cause and the solution agreed upon by the Scout, Scout Leadership and Adult Leadership. The notation from the Step 1 incident will be attached.


Third Step – The Patrol Leader, the Senior Patrol Leader, a Parent and the Troop Committee Chairperson will sit down with the Scout(s) (individually) in a counseling session to determine next steps. From this session, a probation period will be agreed upon and the results of this session will be documented in a letter and provided to the Scout and his parents. If the behavior is repeated again, the Scout will be asked to leave the troop.


Perspective - By using the process above, the responsibility and accountability falls directly on the shoulders of the scout and his parent(s). The troop's is providing every opportunity possible for training and supporting the scout's ability to learn.
