Code of Student Conduct: Elementary (K-5) Responses

These responses are designed to teach appropriate behavior so that our students serve as engaged learners who contribute actively to a safe and mutually respectful educational environment. Faculty/Staff will implement a variety of teaching and classroom responsive strategies. When appropriate, faculty/staff will access the student’s support system, which may include parents/guardians, school counselors, and administration, to ensure successful learning and consistency of response. The goal of the responses is to change student behavior. These responses should be used in a graduated fashion.
