To try to avoid minor or major violations the detention staff is empowered to declare a time out on any resident that appears to be on the verge of a minor or major violation. Time out means 15 minutes or less in your room to gain control of your behavior.
There is absolutely no penalty for a time out and a 3 can still be earned in spite of a time out. Staff can declare time outs. Residents may not declare time outs. If it appears that a resident is manipulating the time out system to avoid certain school work or programs a minor or major violation can be imposed.
