Fines For Fighting At Pine Tree Schools

The Pine Tree School District keeps the peace between children in school in a unique way. If the kids start fighting, mom and dad will face a hefty fine. Pine Tree I.S.D. implemented a strict zero tolerance policy on fighting between students several years ago, which included a 300 dollar fine and suspension from school. Since the enforcement of the policy, there have been no school fights in the last 3 years, and only 1 wrestling match 4 years ago. The strict fining policy is a hit with administrators, but not all the students. The fines are dished out by on campus security guards, and depending on the severity of the incident, a 5 day suspension from school can be assessed.
