The Board of Education accepts the principle that the relationship between staff and students should be one of cooperation, understanding and respect. The Board believes that the Superintendent of Schools and each building level administrator, as instructional leaders, must exhibit a visible, involved relationship with pupil activities to create an appropriate environment for learning.
Staff members shall be expected to regard each student as an individual and to afford each the rights and respect due to any individual. Students shall be treated with courtesy and consideration.
Students shall be expected to regard staff members as individuals, employed to provide direct or indirect contributions to learning. No student shall have the right to interfere with the efforts of the instructional staff to coordinate or otherwise implement a learning program. Nor shall a student have the right to interfere with the motivation to learn or the learning activities and efforts of other students.
