24. How should I deal with a student demonstrating disruptive classroom behavior? 

If a student's behavior is disruptive to the teaching/learning process, the instructor should:

  • Explain that such behavior is unacceptable and describe the consequences if the behavior continues.
  • If the behavior continues, the instructor may ask the student to leave the room for the remainder of the class time.
  • If the student does not leave willingly, the instructor may request the assistance from TCC Campus Police (918-595-8888). The instructor should inform their respective supervisor immediately.
  • The instructor and student should meet to resolve the issue as soon as possible and prior to the time the student is permitted to attend class again.
  • If after discussion, the student refuses to comply with the classroom behavior standards, the instructor should complete a written report and submit it to his/her supervisor. The supervisor will then initiate disciplinary procedures in accordance with the Standards of Student Conduct and Disciplinary Policies and Procedures.

Faculty are encouraged to seek consultation from college personnel as early as possible in an attempt to avoid a situation from escalating to the point where potential disciplinary action is required. For additional assistance and consultation login to MyTCC and select the Critical Incidence tab for additional resources for dealing with difficult situations. Faculty should also notify their department division of issues as soon as possible.
