Behavior and Discipline
Dear Parents and Students:
Student achievement is our primary focus for our schools. To provide the best opportunity for learning requires a safe and secure environment. As Superintendent, it is my expectation that every classroom will be a place where students can learn without disruption.
In order to maintain a climate conducive to learning, guidelines for student behavior are outlined in this Student Code of Acceptable Behavior and Discipline. The Hamilton County Board of Education supports measures that promote a safe environment where effective instruction can take place.
All of us have a responsibility to follow these rules and show respect to our peers, teachers and those in authority. I ask that parents read this code, discuss it with your child, sign the attached Parental/Student Notification Form, and return it to your child’s school. Additionally, students in grades 6-12 are also asked to read the code and sign the attached form before returning it to your school.
Our students and teachers deserve an environment where everyone feels safe and where learning takes place. Supporting your child’s principal and teachers will allow everyone to succeed.
Thank you for your support.
