Discipline

One of the most important lessons education should teach is discipline. While it does not appear as a subject, it underlies the whole educational structure. It is the training that develops self-control, character, orderliness, and efficiency. It is the key to good conduct and proper consideration for other people.

Effective school discipline is a result of a combined effort. Administration, staff, parents and most importantly the student must recognize and promote appropriate behavior. Each member of the staff is responsible for enforcing the school district policies and regulations. All students are expected to cooperate with all staff members in this respect. Failure to do so will result in referral to the principal for appropriate action.

A written discipline policy has been adopted by the Board of Education and is on file in the office.  No discipline will be administered with anger or malicious intent.  Students who demonstrate appropriate behavior will be positively reinforced by staff members.  Bus drivers have the right to direct students in proper behavior while on, getting on or off, or in the vicinity of the bus.  Teachers and principal can direct students' behavior at all times while on school property and at any school-sponsored activity.  All teachers will have posted in the classroom a discipline plan based on the age and grade level of their students in their charge.
