Expectations for Student Behavior (from the Student /Parent Handbook)

In order to create an environment for positive student development and achievement that enhances learning and leads to success in school, we have established a number of Expectations of Student Behavior. These expectations may be divided into two categories – those that apply to academic endeavor and those that apply to student behavior. Compliance with these expectations will foster positive and productive behavior that will enable the student to fulfill his/her own potential. In the area of student behavior, failure to comply with these expectations may result in disciplinary action being taken against the student.
