BEHAVIOR CODE

  • The RECing Crew promotes the concept of “equal fun for everyone” and strives to accomplish this belief through our program. However, certain rules are necessary to ensure everyone’s safety and enjoyment. Crew Members, volunteers and parents are expected to exhibit appropriate behavior at all times. The following guidelines have been developed to make The RECing Crew programs safe and enjoyable for everyone. Crew Members, volunteers and parents shall: • Show respect to all Crew Members, volunteers and parents • Listen to and comply with staff direction and program rules • Allow others in the program and others at public facilities to enjoy the activity without disruption (within reason) • Refrain from using foul language or other offensive behavior such as offensive gestures, sexually explicit language, or inappropriate touching • Refrain from causing bodily harm or offensive physical contact to other Crew Members, Volunteers, or Parents • Demonstrate respect for equipment, supplies, and facilities • All Families, Caregivers, House Staff & Respite Workers are responsible for your participant at all times. Discipline The RECing Crew applies a caring, positive approach to discipline. We will review rules with participants and are willing to work with parents to develop behavior modification programs as necessary. When conduct expectations are not met, we will take reasonable steps to accommodate the behavior and minimize future risks. However, when accommodations are attempted and are unsuccessful, or when no reasonable accommodation exists to avoid future risks, The RECing Crew may take actions such as removing a participant from an activity for a short period of time, removing a participant from an activity the remainder of the day, suspending participation for the next program meeting, or suspending participation in that program for the remainder of the season. Notwithstanding The RECing Crew’s option to use progressive discipline, The RECing Crew is not required to do so and may, in its sole discretion, forego lesser forms of discipline at any time and proceed immediately with suspending participation for the remainder of the season.
