Presevo, Bujanovac, Medvedja – The Ministry of Education envisaged penalties for the students who do not respect discipline.

If children refuse to work, parents will be punished. Bringing drugs or alcohol to school, the use of cigarettes, the "smuggling" of weapons of firecrackers to the class, the endangering of one’s own safety and the safety of students and teachers are the offenses for which students will, in addition to being warned or reprimanded, get mandatory community service in the future.  

“If a student refuses to participate in it ", as the Ministry of Education confirmed for the  “Novosti" daily, the parent will be held responsible.

Students will assist in the tidying up of classrooms, libraries, extended stay premises, dining rooms, in the rearrangement of school desks, clearing of snow or leaves, cultivating flowers or painting the fence, in the preparation of school newspapers or presentations. They will also carry the school bags of the friends that have hurt. If a child receives a warning, he/she will do community service twice a week for the period of two weeks, if he/she is reprimanded by the class teacher, twice a week for the period of three weeks. If he/she is reprimanded by the class council, he/she will do community work nine times per month, is he/she is rebuked by the school principle, 12 times per month and by the Teachers Council, 16 times a month.
