Student Support Services - Student Discipline
A safe and secure school climate is essential for learning. Students benefit most from the educational opportunities that they are provided when their learning environment is safe, secure and orderly.
Effective discipline programs focus first and foremost on the quality of teacher-student-parent relationships, prevention, and teaching expected behavior (social, emotional and behavioral competencies). Schools with effective comprehensive school-wide discipline programs recognize that students require varying levels of academic and behavioral support to benefit from the instructional program.
Proactive teaching, and recognizing what students are doing right, lends itself to a learning environment where students and teachers feel appreciated and respected.
Code of Student Conduct
The Code of Student Conduct explains the rights, expectations, and responsibilities of students, parents, and the School District regarding student behavior. Effective learning takes place in an atmosphere where students, parents, teachers, administrators and support staff are familiar with and abide by the rules. Students and parents should become familiar with the code.
NOTE: The District's Dress Code Policy (Policy 5511) was amended on December 7, 2021. Please refer to Policy 5511 and not the Code of Student Conduct for specific dress code requirements, prohibitions, and possible discipline for violations.
