Code of Conduct Committee

Purpose Statement

The purpose of the Code of Conduct Committee is to provide a safe and orderly school environment where students may receive and district personnel may deliver quality educational services without disruption or interference.  Responsible behavior by students, teachers, and other district personnel, parents, and other visitors is essential to achieving that goal.  The Committee fulfills this purpose through an annual review of the effectiveness of Board of Education Policy #5300, Code of Conduct, and consideration of whether the Code has been applied fairly and consistently.
