A STAR Student...

Submits to authority (focus in September, March)
A king's wrath is a messenger of death, and a wise man will appease it. In the light of a king's face there is life, and his favor is like the clouds that bring the spring rain. Proverbs 16:14,1

• Looks at the teacher and other students when he or she is speaking • Does not speak out of turn or cause distractions in classroom
• Honors the authority of teachers and adults at co-op

Tries their best (focus in October, April)

• Does not give up when an assignment is difficult • Follows directions the first time they are given
• Invests time and energy into studying

Abounds in good deeds (November, May)
Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it. Proverbs 3:27

• Helps teachers and other students without being asked • Asks, “What can I do to help?”
• Is a good example to other students of godly behavior

Respects others (December, January)
What is desired in a man is steadfast love, and a poor man is better than a liar.The fear of the LORD leads to life, and whoever has it rests satisfied; he will not be visited by harm. Proverbs 19:22,23

• Speaks with honor to and about teachers and students • Does not participate in gossip or spreading of rumors

• Respects other’s personal space and property, including the church building

Shows kindness (focus in February)
Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness will find life, righteousness and honor. Proverbs 21:21

• Does nothing out of selfish ambition
• Considers others as better than him/herself
• Looks out for the interest of others


Order of Discipline under the STARS Program


All teachers and assistants will demonstrate love, grace, and helpfulness to all students. However, this does not mean that inappropriate behavior will be tolerated. If a student exhibits inappropriate classroom behavior, the teacher or assistant will call their name ONCE and ask for their attention. If the disruptive behavior then continues, the following will happen sequentially:

  1. The student will receive a verbal warning. A student may only receive ONE warning per class period.
  2. If inappropriate behavior continues in the same class period after being warned, their parent will be asked to assist the student in class for the day or the student will be taken to their parent if he/she is teaching.
  3. If it is necessary for a student’s parent to be approached three times for behavioral reasons, a counseling appointment will be scheduled that will include Pastor Aydelott (or a co-op male leadership), the parent, and the student.
  4. Two meetings are grounds for dismissal from co-op.
  5. Incidents involving bullying, physically harming another person or property damage will bypass the first two steps and lead immediately to the third step.


This is not an exhaustive list of desired behavior and co-op members should always be guided by Christ's Golden Rule: So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.
