“We believe that all students can learn and can achieve given time and quality instruction regardless of their previous academic performance, family background, socioeconomic status, race and/or gender. The mission of the B-G schools is to insure that all students acquire the knowledge and skills which will enable young people to become productive members of society. It is our goal to educate all students to a higher level of academic performance and social/emotional behaviors and attitudes.”
The Board of Education (“Board”) is committed to providing a safe and orderly school environment where students may receive and district personnel may deliver quality educational services without disruption or interference. Responsible behavior by students, teachers, other district personnel, parents and other visitors is essential to achieving this goal.
The district has a long-standing set of expectations for conduct on school property and at school functions. These expectations are based on the principles of civility, mutual respect, citizenship, character, tolerance, honesty and integrity.
The board recognizes the need to clearly define these expectations for acceptable conduct on school property, to identify the possible consequences of unacceptable conduct, and to ensure that necessary discipline is administered promptly and fairly. To this end, the board adopts this code of conduct (“code”).
Unless otherwise indicated, this code applies to all students, school personnel, parents and other visitors when on school property or attending a school function.
