Codes of Conduct

  • The school board annually approves codes of conduct for students in grades K-12. Typically, these codes of conduct are incorporated into the student handbook at each level.

    The Board shall require each student to adhere to Board policies and the rules and regulations promulgated by the administration and to submit to disciplinary measures appropriately assigned for infraction of those rules. School rules and board policies shall govern student conduct in school, at school-sponsored activities, and during the time spent traveling to and from school and school-sponsored activities.

    Off-site or after-hours conduct may subject students to school discipline if the misconduct violates the Code of Conduct and is connected to the school because the conduct does or may reasonably be expected to undermine the proper disciplinary authority of the school, the safety of students or staff, or cause disruption within the school. Factors in determining whether school discipline will be imposed may include whether the conduct caused or is reasonably likely to cause disruption to school work or the school community; whether school property or equipment was used; and whether school activities or interactions were involved in the planning, organizing or promoting of the misconduct.
