Public schools provide students with the opportunity for self-improvement and individual growth. School authorities have the right to control student conduct. Students are expected to conduct themselves at all times in a manner which is compatible with the school’s function as an education facility, and in accordance with District policies and regulations concerning student conduct and discipline, including but not limited to the grounds for suspension, expulsion, and classroom removal in policy JKD/JKE. Conduct which disrupts or threatens to disrupt the operation of a school, which interferes in any way with the rights and privileges of other students or citizens, which endangers the health or safety of any person, or which damages property, will not be tolerated and will result in disciplinary action. All employees of the District shall be expected to share responsibility for supervising behavior of students and for seeing that students abide by the established rules of conduct.
This policy JIC/JICDA, all of its subcodes, and any corresponding regulations approved by the Board shall constitute the student conduct code for the District. A summary of this policy, its subcodes, and any corresponding District regulations, as well as any individual school rules governing student conduct, shall be distributed to each student in the District and his or her parents, guardian, or legal custodian at the beginning of each school year, and to each new student and his or her parents, guardian, or legal custodian upon enrollment, and shall be kept on file within each school building throughout the year.
