Conduct and Behavior of Students

The schools in District One have established a standard of student conduct and behavior and have established rules that take into account the necessity of proper conduct on the part of all students in order that the welfare of the greatest possible number of students shall be promoted. However, there will be times when a student’s behavior will merit disciplinary action. Students are expected to be on their best behavior at all times. South Carolina State Law and school board policy details infractions or acts of misconduct and enforcement procedures.

 

When a student’s behavior is so disruptive that he must be asked to leave the room for the sake of others’ education, he has no place in the school and suspension seems to be the only alternative in protecting the right of others to learn. This policy places a responsibility on principals, teachers and parents. The teacher must be consistent in her own behavior and policies, and the principal must insure that this occurs. Parents must also accept a responsibility to help insure that their child’s attitudes and behavior are conducive to his learning in school.
