BP 5131 Conduct

KPBSD Policy Manual

BP 5131


Access to an education is a right not to be withheld or limited without cause but carries with it the responsibility to obey reasonable rules of conduct. Regulations defining rights and responsibilities will be established to promote the legal rights and legitimate expectations of individual students and the community. District disciplinary procedures and actions will be directed to protecting the rights of individual students to an education, free from disruptive influences.

An orderly school community requires that school personnel have legitimate authority to take actions to protect the school community and to enforce essential and reasonable rules of student conduct. Students are expected to comply in an acceptable manner with reasonable orders and directives from school personnel, and behave in a socially responsible manner. Consequences for misconduct will be fair and developmentally appropriate in light of the circumstances.

Students, parents and the community will be informed of student conduct standards established by the District for all students and those rules of conduct formulated by school personnel for individual schools, classrooms, other teaching/learning environments and transportation services.

Students who violate the law or the rules and regulations of the School District may be subject to the transfer to alternative programs, discipline, suspension, or expulsion.
