Values Our purpose is to develop students academically, socially, emotionally, and physically to the best of their abilities. The parents and students must realize that educational opportunities will not be available to those students who do not try to benefit from school attendance and whose continuing disruptive behavior hinders the progress of other pupils. The primary objective of classroom discipline is to ensure proper work and learning conditions for all students. Teachers will maintain a standard of student behavior which is consistent with Board Policy and standards established by the principal and staff. It is each teacher’s responsibility to promote respect for authority, punctual and regular attendance, expect desirable behavior, and conduct from the students. Discipline must be maintained in order for learning to take place. Every effort will be made to instill the ideals of self-discipline and respect for the rights of others. Proper conduct is required of all students. The principal and teachers are charged with the responsibility of using any necessary Board of Education policies and procedures in regard to discipline in order that the school can function effectively.
