Code of Conduct

The district aims to promote an effective learning environment in its schools where students demonstrate respect, self-discipline, and responsible behavior. Each student must be given the opportunity to learn in a school climate that protects their right to an education without fear or distractions. Bullying and/or intimidation of others will not be tolerated.

Rules for General Behavior

The behavior expected from students at school is a combination of common courtesy and safety considerations.

A few special areas require the application of very specific rules.

The following are never allowed: 1) fighting; 2) bullying, sexual harassment or hazing; 3) defiance of school staff; 4) profanity; 5) possession of dangerous objects; 6) vandalism; and 7) alcohol, cigarettes, including e-cigarettes, and other drugs. (Any instance of using, possessing, supplying to others, or being under the influence of alcohol, cigarettes, including e-cigarettes, illegal or look- alike drugs, or possessing drug paraphernalia on or adjacent to school premises, or at school events is prohibited.) Students violating these rules may be subject to suspension, expulsion warning, expulsion, and/or police referral.

Gross Disobedience and misconduct defined

Gross disobedience and misconduct is defined in Board of Education Policy 7:190.

Student Bullying

Preventing students from engaging in these disruptive behaviors and providing all students equal access to a safe, non-hostile learning environment are important district goals.
