Behavior Intervention (Detention/Restorative Hours)

Students who violate the student code of conduct or fail to comply with classroom expectations may be assigned after-school behavior intervention.

  • Administrators, counselors, the restorative practices facilitator, or office staff may sign students up for the detention room/restorative hours.
  • Students must bring school work, any materials required to complete that work, and a SSR (sustained silent reading) book with them to the detention room. Students must have everything they need with them before entering the room.
  • Once students have signed in, they must stay for the duration of the behavior intervention session.
  • Failure to attend an assigned session may result in an additional session (plus the rescheduled original session).

Academic Support (Tutoring) Now Available

Academic Support at Stout Middle School is now available for students in 6th through 8th grade by subject area.

  • Students must be recommended by and signed up by their subject area teacher.
  • If parents feel their child should be in tutoring, they should contact their child’s subject area teacher and request that the teacher signs their child up for tutoring.
  • Teachers will provide the tutor with information regarding what areas the student needs support.
  • There is a limit of 20 students per offering. Due to large demand, students who miss more than two times will be removed from tutoring and placed on a waiting list before given another opportunity. Additionally, students may be limited to one two-hour tutoring session per week for each subject.

Here is the schedule:



Students of the Month for February 2018

Set aside family reading time

Having your child see you reading sets a good example. Pick a time each day when everyone sits down and reads for 15-30 minutes. You can read a book or a newspaper or even just browse a catalog, for example.
