It is inevitable that conflict sometimes arises between people, even between Christians. That is why God gave us principles in the Bible for conflict resolution. It is the intention of Country Christian School to help our students learn this process as we “train them up in the way they should go.”
When a student comes home with a problem:
Review the biblical principals laid out in Matthew 5:21-26.
Ask your student if he or she has talked to or would like to talk with the teacher or student peer that the conflict is with.
Ask your student if he or she would like you to go along to meet with the teacher or student peer.
Ask your student if he or she would like you to address the teacher or the student peer alone.
If you as a parent have a conflict with a teacher (or one or more of your student’s classmates):
Go to the teacher to attempt to resolve the problem.
If this does not solve the problem, set an appointment with the school’s principal for a meeting between you and the teacher and the principal.
If this does not solve the problem, a written appeal may be submitted to the chairman of the board regarding any policies, procedures, or guidelines. The chairman of the committee will respond to your request.
If you as a parent have a conflict with the principal:
Ask for an appointment with the principal to discuss your concerns.
Set an appointment with the principal for a meeting that includes the chairman of the school relations committee of the Board.
Write an appeal that addresses any related policy, procedure, or guideline. The school relations committee chairman of the board will respond to your request.
If you have a conflict with the board:
Write an appeal that addresses policy, procedure, or guideline. The chairman of school relations committee of the board will respond to your request.
Suggestions to remember before you proceed with the above guidelines:
Review the biblical principal and to speak the truth in love.
Be courteous and respectful.
Don’t gossip or involve other parents in these conflicts.
Treat others as you would like to be treated.
