The Exchange Code of Conduct
CODE OF CONDUCT
All of The Exchange members are here to develop or deepen a growing relationship with Jesus. In order to do that in a safe and encouraging environment, a code of conduct creates clarity for all involved, helps prevents conflicts and promotes a culture of Christ-like behavior.
Participants in The Exchange, should understand and agree to the following:
I will be responsible!
- I will not use cell phones, iPods, cameras or other personal electronic or entertainment devices during The Exchange.
- I will do my part to keep the church building clean by picking up trash, being responsible in the restroom and washing my hands.
I will be Respectful!
- I will respect, listen to, and cooperate with The Exchange staff at all times.
- I will respect myself, other people, other people’s property, and the church property.
- I will be an encourager, not one who ridicules, makes fun of, or is critical of others.
- I will show respect by not causing disruptions and not talking unless called on to respond during teaching times.
- I will use language that reflects Jesus; I will not use curse words or other foul language.
I will be Safe!
- I will keep my hands to myself: no tickling, wrestling, hitting or inappropriate touching.
- I will stay with my group at all times.
- I will not possess a gun, knife, or any other weapon at any Exchange activity.
Failure to comply with the code of conduct:
The “Three Count” will be used for correcting the behavior of an individual who chooses to misbehave and break any part of the code of conduct.
Count of “ONE.”
– A warning is given by a leader, to a child, that he/she should stop misbehaving. The child will be told why this warning has been given.
Count of “TWO.”
– The misbehaving child is counseled by The Exchange Director.
Count of “THREE.”
– Having received a “THREE” count, the child’s parents will be called to pick up their child from The Exchange.
**Any student who hits, kicks, bites, spits on/at another student automatically receives a count of “TWO.” **
