Alternative school detentions

School detentions can be long punishments which requires teachers to oversee the pupils under detention. We thus pay extra-hours for the teacher that mon-fri have to stay longer that needed, and we pay even more for Saturday in which they have to come on purpose. Also the students don't like long detentions, but won't like it either if they are made more harsh Are you in favor to incentivize students to pick up shorter but harsher punishments, so they can pay more or less the same price without keeping their teachers around for too long? Here we propose a system made by 5 levels of detention. For a given offense the student would be assigned a level, and has to choose one of the options in that level. More serious or repeated offense would correspond to a higher level of detention being imposed upon the student. After an infraction has been committed, the teacher will check the rules and apply the regulated level, and hand over the student a piece of paper with the choices for that level. The student will have to check an option when in turns in for after-school suspension, thus he/she has time to think about it from when he breaks the rule until school finishes. What that options would be written in each slipper, and to what offense each level corresponds?
