Como dizer "levar uma ocorrência (escola)" em inglês
Hey there,

Does anyone know any equivalents for our "levar uma ocorrência" in English? For example:

"Cara, acabei de levar uma ocorrência! Da próxima vez que a coordenadora me chamar, vou ser suspenso da escola."

Thanks!

Sim, existe. As expressões utilizadas são "give a warning" ou "get a warning", no sentido de "dar uma ocorrência" ou "levar uma ocorrência" (advertência) em inglês.

Depois disso, o aluno pode ser mandado para o (principal's office).
  • He was sent to the principal's office. [Ele foi mandado para a sala do diretor. Ele foi mandado para a diretoria.]
  • He was given a warning. [Ele levou uma ocorrência (advertência).]
Bons estudos.

Guy, I was just given a (verbal) warning. Next time I am called to the principal´s office I will get a suspension.

But then, there are several kinds of discipline policies and school staff configurations.

Giving a verbal warning reminds me of cops letting people go without charging them, haha. But I guess it makes sense in this case too, thanks for your input!

It happens with the law enforcement and police vocabulary as well. In the UK there are two words for it, caution or warning. In the U.S. Warning is prevalent.

https://www.themix.org.uk/crime-and-saf ... -9317.html
A caution is basically the police’s way of telling you off if you are 10 years old or older and have committed a minor offence. (in the States that happens with juveniles as well, I don´t know which age bracket - if any - it applies.)

You can be cautioned if police have evidence you’ve broken the law, but don’t think its bad enough to put you through the courts. This is classed as an official warning but you aren’t being arrested and you won’t go to court.

In a more informal way, we can talk about a "telling off". And the words are not that derogatory/pejorative as it seems to us. By the way, "ocorrência" is more law-ish to us than "warning" to them.
Anyway, let´s wait for further comments.

My suggestion:

To be reprimanded.

"Cara, acabei de levar uma ocorrência! Da próxima vez que a coordenadora me chamar, vou ser suspenso da escola."

Man, I have just been reprimanded, The next time I get called to the principal's office I will get a suspension.

Bye!

Thanks for the suggestion! So I'm assuming they don't have this same kind of thing we have here in Brazil, where the person goes either to the coordination or to the principal's office and gets an "ocorrência". Back in my school, the person walked out of their offices with some sort of note in their hands stating the warning.

As I pointed out there are different policies around, and depending on the seriousness of the thing and on how many times you do something like you must talk with the headteacher who is going to call your parents and inform them about your behavior.
This call could be in form of a letter, calling, etc. There are schools that will send a home notification by emal/letter/calling to inform parents of issues. When this happens, they are supposed to drop by at the school to establish personal contact to discuss those issues (as soon as possible).

One example of discipline policy:
Discipline will be handled as much as possible by the classroom teacher and/or the yard supervisor.
Among methods are:
• Problem-Solving Wheel – Discuss and Model Appropriate Behavior• Detentions - missing morning break and/or lunch break. Detention will be served by writing sentences or quotes of affirmation, community service or other as assigned by principal.
• 3 detentions = 1 referral• Student and teacher conferences • Parent conference/ note/ phone call • Individual contracts STUDENT SELF-

REPORTINGS
Tudents may, within a timely manner report any breach in discipline code.
Consequences will be weighted differentlyand/or may be waived at the discretion of designee or administration.
CONSEQUENCES OF REFERRAL or SUSPENSION
1st referral –Discussion of behavior and home notification, miss next upcoming school activity (excludes FNL functions)
2nd referral - Home notification and parent conference with student present, miss next upcoming school activity(excludes FNL functions)
3rd referral - Suspension - in house or at home - or prior agreed upon course of action, such as a student contract,parent conference, miss all activities** for the rest of the quarter

Suspension - in house or at home - or prior agreed upon course of action, such as a student contract, parentconference, miss all activities** for the rest of the quarter.
If suspensions are brought before the School Boardthe Board of Trustees will consider expulsion.**except when deemed necessary for student’s education by the principal(Parents have the right to request stricter consequences.)


**except when deemed necessary for student’s education by the principal

That´s why I put a parenthetical "verbal" before "warning" in my previous post. The warning can be just verbal, but it could go home, depending on the seriousness of the situation, if it´s a repeat, etc, etc.

It´s worth pointing out that teachers and staff will see it case by case, they are trying to educate and pass on (educational) information, it´s not a law-enforcement institution, after all. Sometimes they may study a case and find that is a case of special education needs, it may happen.
