Students often abuse going in and out of classes all the time. The most common thing that is requested is to go to the bathroom, or get out of class to go check their phone or meet up with their boyfriend or girlfriend. In response to this age old problem I have come up with a solution.
The first thing I do is make sure that I give each student ONE bathroom pass per semester. I just put a little “B” next to each of the students names on the seating chart. If they need to go to the bathroom outside the bathroom pass then the students can use tardies. Also, the students who don’t use their bathroom passes can transfer their bathroom passes to other students that need it. This has totally resolved my bathroom pass situation and I can say without a doubt that I do not have a bathroom pass issue.
The one thing that could be a problem is that the admin may or may not let you do this system. If a student has a bathroom problem then they can bring a note from a doctor then they can go whenever they need to.
