Student Conduct and Discipline

Student misbehavior on school grounds can create difficult situations and potentially legal problems. If a student breaks the law in some way, law enforcement officers often handle the matter. But if it’s a matter of school discipline, it will be in the hands of school administrators. FindLaw's Student Conduct and Discipline section will help you understand your legal responsibilities, information and resources to help facilitate a safe and effective learning environment at school. You also will find practical information on classroom management and discipline -- such as truancy and bullying – and other legal issues related to school safety and authority.
