My son is constantly giving one of his teachers a hard time, he gets consequences at school but what would be a good consequence at home?
Keep in mind he is 14, 6'3", and has anger issues

He constantly disrupts the classroom, aguemenatove with teacher, tells the teacher what he will and won't do...
And then either walks out or gets kicked out.
I've had the meetings with the school, I'm the one pushing for more consequences but for some reason they keep letting him slide by not enforcing the rules.
I stay on them and continually call to make sure they do as they said they were going to

Ok, but what is he doing?

Punishments should differ for each offense. I'm not going to suggest restriction if pulling privileges would be a better recommendation.

If he's continuing to escalate the situation at school, has anger issues, is using his size as an intimidating factor (I'm assuming this because you keep mentioning his size...), and seems to have no remorse or understanding of wrongdoing, perhaps it's time to get a team in place consisting of school teachers, counselors, administrators, your son, and you as parents, in order to develop a plan for him to improve and move forward.

He is 6'3", in counseling, and the school is upping the punishments at school, but I've done all the punishments I could think of already and am just hoping for some creative ideas

I agree 100% w/ Shawnn.... and if you are mentioning the size and anger issues because you are afraid of how he will act... I'd say that counseling is a much better alternative to calling the police which is what I will do if any of my preteen/teenaged children ever tried to get physical and intimidating w/ me. My oldest is 12 and already knows that nonsense will not be tolerated (not that she ever WOULD, but... she's been told).

first of all, what's he doing? And if the teacher is having an issue, why isn't the teacher upping the consequences?

If he's 14, 6'3" and has anger issues, I recommend counseling. If he's 14, 5'2" and has anger issues, I'd recommend the same. Size has nothing to do with it, unless he's using his size as an intimidation factor.
