School Policies

code of conduct

This Code of Conduct is presented to assist students, staff, and parents/guardians understand the expectations for acceptable conduct while in school or attending school-sponsored activities, on school grounds, and while on the way to and from school. All students are expected to follow the Code of Conduct in a developmentally age appropriate manner. Principals will review the Code of Conduct with their staff and students at the beginning of each school year. It is the collective responsibility of students, staff, and parents/guardians to see that the expectations set forth in this Code of Conduct are supported.


This Code of Conduct will be applied equitably without regard to race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, marital status, pregnancy, parenthood, or a mental, physical or sensory disability or by any other distinguishing characteristics as required by law. For students with disabilities, subject to an Individualized Education Plan, the Code of Conduct shall be implemented in accordance with the components of the applicable plans.




The Board of Education prohibits acts of harassment, intimidation, or bullying of a student.  A safe and civil environment in school is necessary for students to learn and achieve high academic standards. Harassment, intimidation, or bullying, like other disruptive or violent behaviors, is conduct that disrupts both a student’s ability to learn and a school’s ability to educate its pupils in a safe and disciplined environment.


The purpose of the Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying (HIB) Act is to strengthen standards by which school districts prevent, report, investigate, & respond to incidents of bullying. This is a guideline that:

  • Defines the anti-bullying rights act

  • Describes the process on how the Principal responds to HIB

  • Notes what the Anti-bullying Specialist (ABS) looks for and factors in their investigation

  • Compares conflict vs bullying

  • Tips on how to help your child avoid bullying

  • Possible signs that your child is being bullied

  • What to do if your child is being bullied

  • What if my child is engaged in bullying activity

  • What about records
