"A student will be taken into an office behind closed doors," the form states, WRDW reported. "The student will place their hands on their knees or piece of furniture and will be struck on the buttocks with a paddle."
The paddling policy is voluntary.
"There's no obligation, it's not required," Boulineau told WRDW. "A parent can either give consent for us to use that as a disciplinary measure or they can deny consent."
If parents do not consent to paddling, their students still are disciplined with a five-day suspension.
