    WASHINGTON STATE: private schools

  • Riverview Baptist Christian School, Pasco New!
    All parents must sign the Corporal Punishment form. There is a maximum of three paddle swats. Three demerits plus a spanking are given to any student, at any grade level (K through 12), who cheats, shows disrespect, uses vulgar language, listens to rock music, lies, skips class or leaves campus without permission, among other things. Also, any student who accumulates six demerits in a quarter receives an "Automatic spanking". Furthermore, "Any effort to cheat in completing of the demerit will result in swats".

  • The Oaks Christian School, Spokane Valley New!
    At this K-12 school, a second disciplinary visit to the Headmaster's Office "may entail corporeal [sic] punishment".


    WEST VIRGINIA: private schools

  • Elk Valley Christian School, Elkview New!
    Corporal punishment is used at the parent's request and only with a signed consent form.


    WYOMING: public schools

  • Fremont County School District, Riverton
    This stipulates that only elementary schools may use corporal punishment; a record must be kept. At the Middle School and the High School, "no paddle or other means of inflicting such punishment shall be retained on school premises".
        In fact, none of the four elementary schools mentions CP in the discipline pages of their individual websites, so this policy is probably now a dead letter.


  • These Wyoming public schools also state that they may use corporal punishment, but give few or no details:

    Carbon County School District (covers Encampment, Hanna, Saratoga)
