This is a one-page customizable and printable MS Word expectations agreement that I use with my middle school students. It is simple and broad so that students understand it and it applies flexibly to different situations. Just replace the name at the top with your own and it's ready to go.
The "4 B" format is easy for students to remember and has a positive but firm tone: be prepared, be respectful, be responsible, be successful! There is a space provided for the student and a guardian to sign and date. This form will clarify expectations and provide a reference and support as behavior concerns come up throughout the year.
