The Board of Education is committed to maintaining a school which provides students and staff with productive, satisfying, and wholesome learning environments. Essentially, this means that relationships are such that students can learn and teachers can teach.
The Board is also committed to protecting First Amendment freedoms within the school system; however, lawlessness in any form will not be tolerated. The district will not permit students to engage in any conduct intended to destroy personal or school property, disrupt or interfere with teaching, research, service, administrative or disciplinary functions, or any district-sponsored or approved activity.
All policies regarding student conduct and discipline shall be uniformly enforced and distributed annually to the students, parents and staff of the district. All policies shall publicized and explained to students. The timing of the explanation and the manner of publication shall be determined by the Superintendent of Schools. The Superintendent shall each year advise the Board in writing of the manner and extent of the publication and explanation.
