Using detention slips can be an effective way of keeping track of who is getting detention and making sure all parties involved understand the parameters of the practice in a school. This lesson offers a template you can use for detention slips.

Purpose of a Detention Slip

Are you a teacher or an administrator in a school where detentions are used as a disciplinary strategy? If so, then you probably understand the importance of all parties involved understanding exactly why detentions are taking place. If students do not have a clear understanding of why they are in detention, then they are unlikely to learn very much from the experience. Similarly, teachers and families cannot properly support students in improving their performance and behavior if they do not understand what the problem is in the first place.
