Discipline is the training that develops self-control, character, orderliness, and efficiency. It is the key to good conduct and proper consideration for other people.
It is the responsibility of students to:
- Be aware of all rules for student behavior and conduct themselves in accord with them.
- Volunteer information about the health, safety, and welfare of the school community and protection of school property.
- Dress and groom to meet for standards of safety and health and not cause substantial disruption.
- Assist staff in operating a safe school
- Comply with state and local laws.
- Exercise proper care when using public facilities and equipment.
- Express their ideas and opinions in a respectful manner.
- Report accurately and avoid indecent or obscene language in student publications.
If students do not accept their responsibilities, appropriate disciplinary actions will be taken by school staff. Disciplinary options include:
- Verbal reprimand
- Special assignment
- Withdrawal of privileges
- Removal from class, temporary or permanent
- Detention, before or after school. Students are given a day's notice to find transportation if needed. Schools are not responsible for transportation.
- In-school suspension
- Out-of-school suspension for up to 10 school days
- Expulsion from school by the Board of Directors for at least ten school days.
