Having a disclosure document can be helpful for many reasons. It can help you think through the rules and procedures you want to establish in your classroom. It is also a key document in communicating to families some of the key expectations of your classroom. The next installment of my Back to School series includes some of the formats my disclosure documents have taken. It includes a PDF file of my most recent document that will hopefully give you some ideas for your disclosure document. This ABC format has been very helpful to me. Regardless of the grade you teach, having a disclosure is a good idea. Read my post to get your free disclosure example and to read more about how I use them.
