PDL Class Policy 

Please verify that your student understands our policy. We want our students to treat us and each other with respect, and we want to make sure everyone has an enjoyable class time. First of all, students will need to purchase the Java Edition of Minecraft on their own computers.
 
When in a Playful Digital Learning class, please respect your instructor and other students.
Follow the teacher’s instructions
1. Do not destroy buildings or writing of other students
2. Be polite and kind when suggesting or criticizing ideas
3. Allow other students to speak

If the class is frequently interrupted or the student is misbehaving:
1. First time: Verbal or written warning
2. Second time: Put the student in a breakout room to speak with an instructor one on one
3. Third time: Kicked or temporarily banned from the Minecraft server or document until the teacher deems the behavior is corrected

Any warnings will be communicated to the student’s parent/guardian.

Please note that the Minecraft server may also be temporarily turned off while students are doing other tasks (such as writing or discussing).
