How does your high school discipline tardies? I am new to high school and our school's policy just doesn't sit right with me.
3 tardies = 1 block in school suspension (for the block you have the most tardies to)
4 tardies = 1 day in school suspension
5 tardies = 1 day out of school suspension

I get that they need a consequence for tardies, but when that consequence is missing more of class, that seems to go against the point, which is for kids to be in class. Not to mention that as a teacher, I am responsible for getting together all of the work for that day and getting it to the student ahead of time and catching him up when he gets back.

I just keep thinking there must be a better way. What does your school do about tardies?

I am not sure of the exact number, maybe 5. After 5 tardies they get 1 day detention. If they fail to serve detention in a certain amount of time, they get 1 day of ISS. I think the number of days of ISS increases. OSS for tardies seems insane.
If they are habitually tardy to 1st period and they drive, they lose their driving privileges.

Our district has ISS for KINDERGARTNERS, FIRST, AND SECOND GRADERS for tardies. Now THAT is insane.

We used to have a policy where when students were tardy to class three times, he or she would get an office detention of one hour.
Then, it became three tardies and you would get a warning. Three more a detention. Then, they changed it to four tardies, warning, and an office detention. At this point, the VP we had would "investigate" and make the classroom teacher come up with a plan to help the kid get to class on time.

This year, the teacher should deal with this. So what are we supposed to do? We can't give detentions so nothing will happen.

Late to school type tardies are worse. No one really keeps track. So one kid can be late three times and get one detention where others are late 30 times before they get ONE detention. If they don't serve, the VP chases after them. No suspension for tardies here. We don't even have an type of ISS or ISS room.

When I was in high school 3 tardies equaled a detention. If you didn't serve it in a specific amount of time it doubled. If you didn't serve that you got Saturday school. If you didn't serve that you got suspended. I think it was in school suspension. If you missed a whole period you got an automatic detention. If you missed a specific amount you got Saturday school. If you missed too many total you risked not graduating. Also, at my middle school and high school suspension meant you failed any assignment or exam done in your absence. Teachers were not expected to provide any work for a suspension. Many teachers would provide work but they did not have to. You could end up sitting in a little stall doing absolutely nothing all day. Yes, it's a waste of class time but I can tell you most children wouldn't ever want to do it again. I think in school suspension can be extremely effective. If you fail assignments for getting suspended parents are also more likely to encourage you to get to school or class on time. Out of school suspension also always included a parent-teacher conference before you were allowed to return to school. This was a pain in the butt and got parents involved in changing behaviors. Also, too many absences and my school would report you to the authorities. Children in my county ended up in juvenile hall for missing too much school.
