Student Conduct and Discipline

Student conduct and issues with misbehavior can be viewed as small school matters. But student misbehavior in the classroom can trigger difficult situations and potentially legal issues. 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. If you are a student, teacher, administrator, or school staff member, the “Student Conduct and Discipline” section is a resource. It has information and resources to help facilitate a safe and effective learning environment at school. It provides practical information on classroom management and discipline -- such as truancy and bullying – and other legal issues related to school safety and authority.
