School Discipline Policy

Standards of Student Safety and Security

The Board of Directors has set forth rules and expectations addressing student safety and security. Much like the rules that govern our cities, violations of these rules carry penalties, fines, and consequences, etc. that are prescribed by law. The purpose of penalties under these federal, state, and local laws is to insure an orderly and safe society.

The Board of Directors sets the standards for safety and security and has set penalties for violation of these standards. These standards address the safety and security of both children and school staff. They are not up for interpretation at the school level, just as the laws for our state, city, and/or country statutes are not up for interpretation or revision by local school administrators.
