I.d.Dissemination and Review
Dissemination of Code of Conduct
The code of conduct shall be available to each student household prior to the start of school either via the Web site or from the appropriate building Principal. Students, parents and/or guardians shall be encouraged to review the code together in order to best promote its understanding and acceptance. All new students will be given a copy of the code of conduct with their registration packets. A general assembly will be held for each school or each grade level at which the contents of the code shall be reviewed. Any questions about the code should be directed to the building Principal. The District shall make copies of the Code available for review by students, parents and other community members.
Review of Code of Conduct
Each year the code will be reviewed and updated as necessary by the code of conduct committee. In conducting the review, the Committee will consider how effective the Code’s provisions have been and whether the Code has been applied fairly and consistently. The committee will seek input from faculty, staff and students each spring and open call for suggestions will be posted on the website where community members, parents and other interested constituents will be able to express concerns or make suggestions.
The Board of Education will consider recommendations for changes in the code each year. Before adopting any revisions to the Code, the Board will hold at least one public hearing at which school personnel, parents, students and other interested party may participate. The Code of Conduct and any amendments to it will be filed with the Commissioner, no later than thirty (30) days after adoption.
