Discipline

PS 150 follows the DOE discipline code of conduct. At PS 150 a positive commendation system is used to reward student behavior. The respect matrix outlines expected behavior. Students can receive commendation cards individually and as a class. They can exchange these cards for rewards. Our focus is always to teach our students to reflect and learn from their actions so they may become productive and respectful citizens.
