Students are encouraged to become involved in extra-curricular, co-curricular and athletic activities. Student participation in such activities, including interscholastic athletics, is provided as an opportunity for students as long as they agree to follow the rules and guidelines as outlined. In as much as participation is a privilege (not a right), students who violate the guidelines will be subject to the penalties outlined, up to and including suspension from participation in such activities. The last page contains an acknowledgement form that must be printed, signed and returned.
In accordance with the provisions of law, the Board of Education has set forth in this Student Code of Conduct the rules governing the most serious and obvious types of student misconduct. The prohibited acts listed in this Student Code of Conduct are not to be construed as an all-inclusive list or as a limitation upon the authority of school officials to deal appropriately with violations of a school building's individual rules and regulations or other types of conduct which interfere with the good order of the school system, the proper functioning of the educational process, or the health and safety of students.
