Secondary Schools Code of Conduct
Do Your Best
Do What’s Right
Honor the Team
It is important to remember that the school rules apply going to and from school, at school, on school property, at school-sponsored events, and on school transportation. In some cases, a student can be suspended from school transportation for infractions of school bus rules. Ultimately, it is the principal’s responsibility to keep things orderly. In all cases, the school shall attempt to make discipline prompt and equitable and to have the discipline match the severity of the incident.
A student may be detained after school or asked to come to school early by a teacher after giving the student and his/her parents notice. The student or his/her parents are responsible for transportation. Detentions by a teacher are 30-60 minutes after school with the teacher who assigned the detention. Students are to bring enough homework for the duration of this period. Detentions assigned by the office are an hour in length and are served in the office.
Students are required to report to the AIR room immediately after they are released to lunch. A student missing any portion of his/her assigned time in lunch detention will be assigned additional consequences. Failure to be in attendance may result in a meeting with parents before coming back to school. The following rules shall apply to both in-school suspension and to after-school or lunch detention:
·Students are not to communicate with each other unless given special permission to do so.
·Students are to remain in their designated seats at all times unless permission is granted to do otherwise.
·Students are not allowed to sleep.
·No radios, cards, games, or other recreational articles shall be allowed in the room.
·No food or beverages shall be consumed during In-School Suspension.
In-school suspension will be in session from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Assigned students shall arrive with sufficient educational materials to be busy during the entire class day. The students will receive two five-minute breaks and will be sent to the cafeteria to get lunch, but must return to the ISS room immediately after getting their food. Any In-School Suspension will be in accordance with district guidelines on suspension and expulsion.
Students who receive out-of-school suspension can be removed for a portion of a day or up to 10 days for violations of school disciplinary policies. Out-of-school suspension for less than 1 day are not subject to the appeals process.
Long-Term Suspension and Expulsion
Exclusion of a student of more than ten days is considered a long term suspension and must be administered by board action. Expulsion is the permanent prohibition of a student from the district and district functions.
