Answer the following question:

At ICA Cristo Rey, it's important for us to maintain basic standards as a college-prep school with a corporate work study program. We observe a specific dress code; we have policies governing the use of personal technology at school; we must have students arriving on time and staying accountable for their responsibilities; and perhaps most importantly, we have a detailed code of conduct to help our students treat each other, and the adults at school, with respect and maturity. It's essential that these standards are applied and enforced consistently across the whole community. At the same time, we must be conscious of the challenges our students face outside of school, and we must make efforts to "meet them where they are," treating them with an attitude of patience and restorative justice.

How will you balance the enforcement of fair standards with the need of our students to have encouragement and compassion in order to grow? Given all of the above, what do you believe is an effective approach to students who struggle with rules and procedures? (Maximum Response:  500 words)
