The Sheehan cafeteria has one paid lunch monitor to supervise 2 grades (approximately 100-120 students) at lunchtime. This is not adequate adult supervision. Parent volunteers are not always available and are not trained to deal with discipline issues (nor is it usually appropriate for them to do so). To provide adequate supervision for students at lunchtime and to make the Sheehan lunch period a relaxed and enjoyable experience for students we ask for the following to be implemented:

1. A minimum of 2 paid lunch monitors, who are each given a minimum of 5 hours of training on behavior management in groups & CPR training

2. Monitors should have access to "as needed" consultation with a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (already employed in the district) and regular consultation with the Principal to problem solve & resolve discipline issues

3. A consistent, streamlined, and more effective behavior program should be employed to avoid: group punishments, haphazard punishments, overly punitive punishments, students being asked to police their peers, and offensive/aggressive/disrespectful behaviors
