Ms. Cynthia Ponce

Assistant Principal & Campus Behavior Coordinator

Phone Number: (956) 323-2200 | Email: c.ponce@lajoyaisd.net 


Ms. Ponce has been designated to serve as Jimmy Carter’s Campus Behavior Coordinator, a position primarily responsible for maintaining student discipline.

The Campus Behavior Coordinator shall promptly notify a students parent or guardian if the student is placed into in-school or out-of-school suspension, placed in a disciplinary alternative education program, expelled, etc.

A Campus Behavior Coordinator:

  Promptly contacts the parent or guardian by telephone or in person; and

 Makes a good faith effort to provide written notice of the disciplinary action to the student, on the day the action is taken, for delivery to the students parent or guardian.

 A teacher may send a student to the campus behavior coordinator’s office to maintain effective discipline in the classroom.  The campus behavior coordinator shall respond by employing appropriate discipline management techniques consistent with the student code of conduct…that can be reasonably be expected to improve the student’s behavior before returning the student to the classroom.  If the student’s behavior does not improve, the campus behavior coordinator shall employ alternative discipline management techniques, including any progressive interventions designated as the responsibility of the campus behavior coordinator in the student code of conduct.

 The behavior coordinator must consider whether the student acted in self-defense, the intent or lack of intent at the time the student engaged in the conduct, the student’s disciplinary history, and whether the student has a disability that substantially impairs the student’s capacity to appreciated the wrongfulness of the student’s conduct, regardless of whether the decision of the behavior coordinator concerns a mandatory or discretionary action.
