STUDENT CONDUCT
7310 SCHOOL CONDUCT AND DISCIPLINE

The Board of Education acknowledges its responsibility to protect the educational climate of the District and to promote responsible student behavior. Accordingly, the Board has adopted the Brockport Code of Conduct. Pursuant to Education Law, the Code of Conduct governs student behavior as well as the behavior of all persons on District grounds and/or at District-sponsored activities.

Additional rules, regulations and procedures may appear in building-level handbooks and in other Board of Education policies.

In general, the Board expects the District’s student discipline program to reflect the following components:

  • Penalties for behavioral infractions will be consistent with the Code of Conduct and appropriate to the seriousness of the offense and to the previous disciplinary record of the student;
  • Procedures to involve professional staff, parents, and students in the early identification and prevention of disciplinary problems;
  • Alternate educational programs appropriate to individual student needs;
  • Guidelines and in-service programs for staff to ensure effective implementation of discipline policies and practices.

The District will communicate the terms of the Code of Conduct broadly throughout the school community. The District will provide all teachers with a copy of the Code of Conduct at the beginning of the school year or upon employment. The district will also provide a summary of the Code to all students and parents at the beginning of each school year. The full Code will be available for review by students, parent, other staff and community members at any time.
