The Board realizes that children must be guided by rules and regulations to govern their conduct and behavior including the establishment of a “Code of Conduct”, and that these rules will be firmly and consistently enforced throughout the school, on the school bus and during activities of the District. The “Code of Conduct” will be published in its entirety in the Parent/Student and Staff handbooks.

Within this policy framework, it is the duty of the Board, the administrative staff, and the staff to prohibit and to prevent those types of student conduct that interfere with the continuing educational process. Behavior that becomes dangerous, disruptive distracting or destructive will not be tolerated.

The District Administrator is directed to develop such Administrative Rules and Regulations are as necessary to support this policy.

An administrator may suspend a student, assuring appropriate communication to the parents regarding the event and the action taken.

Students violating this policy may be referred for prosecution under applicable laws.

The Board shall review and make the final decision on all recommendations for the expulsion of a student, providing the student all considerations and due process as required by State statutes.
